Anyone sell on-line?? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
so if you just want to sell locally in your state and are a legal kitchen you can sell online though right? without all the other certifications?

Yes. You can do anything you want in your state. If you live near a state line, like I do, you can do business in the other state too in the area just over the line. This falls under the fair trade between states act. You still must register with their health dept, and if their requirements are similar, all is well. They can inspect your kitchen at will, just like your local health dept.

I need to add something. My brother-in-law owns a restaurant in the next county where health dept regulations are very lax. When he wanted to give away hamburgers and hot dogs at his mother's store (in my county)during a festival, he found that even though he had a license in another county, he had to abide by this county's rules... running water on site (a parking lot), and a few other sanitation requirements, which made it impossible. But, he could fully cook his food in his county and reheat it here. So, if you have a situation like this that involves preparation off-site, check first.

This has been a very informative thread! I know what some of the requirements are for getting legal in my city, and I know that at this point, it isn't going to happen for me. I'm just too slow of a decorator to turn a profit once everything is said and done. And having a stressful full-time job is too draining to then go put in extra hours decorating after leaving the office! But having this information is a good thing.

So a majority of these folks selling on etsy are illegally selling cookies? Wow!! I know a home bakery in my area that has an "online only" business, so they definately are breaking the law.

They could be FDA approved, but I doubt it. It costs very little. The real cost is the kitchen. But anyone interested, it only takes a call to the dept of ag and they send out the package. Even if you don't want to be certified, the recall system is worth getting the packet.

This thread has been very helpful - thanks for all of the information! I haven't been considering selling on-line, because I'm in MD and I can't legally sell from my home kitchen. But this is excellent information for me to file away for sometime (hopefully) in the future.

Every thing here is good to know. I diffently have a different outlook on things now.
In my state there is no home cooking allowed. But, how would I handle it (such as inspections) if I were to rent kitchen space?
Where would I then begin to get legal?
