Maryland Cottage Food Law - Page 2

post #16 of 21

I wish Delaware had a Cottage Food Law. We are not able to sell any baked goods unfortunately.

I might be moving to MD in a year or so and just wanted to follow this thread. I would be more than happy to help in any way I can to help expand the current restrictions. That is, help in whatever way possible while still across the country :/

I wonder if it would be possible to take an order for a cake, and bring ordered cakes, at the Farmer's Market (or other public events)? No delivery or picking up at your home involved.

Just thinking...

 

I'm going to call some health departments out in MD next week, but wondering if anyone might already know the answer on here:

 

Can you have a 2nd kitchen in your house to bake out of if it's commercial? I've been looking at real estate out there and see that there are a lot of basements, and some have a kitchen. Would it be legal to just renovate it into a commercial kitchen? Or would it have to be detached?

I am bumping this because i was wondering the same thing. We are in the process of moving to MD.

Though if i were to guess, the fees involved would be too much for the casual home cake baker.

The county I live in states on their Health Dept. site that they will not certify a home kitchen. It does not matter if it is a second kitchen in the basement or detached...they will not come out and certify it as a commercial kitchen.
