Oklahoma passed a cottage food law in 2013 (HB 1094 – The Home Bakery Act of 2013), which is a fairly restrictive law. Producers can only sell certain types of baked goods, and sales are limited to $20,000 per year, but no license from the health department is required.

Unfortunately, producers may only sell at their home. This ruling has caused a lot of controversy because there is not language in the law to back it up, but the health department has taken a firm stand that that is their interpretation of the law.

In addition, the “Oklahoma Honey Sales Act” (SB 716) went into effect in 2013, which allows small-scale honey producers to sell without much regulation.

An amendment bill (SB 696) did not pass in 2015, which would have allowed more types of cottage food businesses and sales venues. However, it was not popular with some people using the current law, as it would have forced them to get trained and submit product labels before continuing their business. A less restrictive version of this bill (SB 1915) also did not pass in 2014. For updates, check out this facebook page.

I have a vendor that wants to sell cinnamon rolls at one of our events. It is a one time event that is a benefit for the local EMT’s here in town. Can we do this?
If not, if I take the “baker” to a certified kitchen and bake them can they sell them?

    I’m pretty sure they can’t do that from their home kitchen. If they used a commercial kitchen, there would be a way to get permits for them to sell, but you need to discuss it with the health dept. It might not be practical for a one-time event.
