I understand that NJ law prohibits homemade sales of baked goods. My question concerns internet sales made out of state. Which states’ laws govern the transaction: is it the state in which the sale is made or the state in which the goods are produced? For instance, if I produce homemade goods at home in NJ, can I then sell them to a state that allows the sale of homemade goods? Or is this still prohibited within NJ?
Technically both states’ laws could govern the sale. At the very least, the laws for your state will come into play, which means that you wouldn’t be able to sell any homemade food, even if it was sold out-of-state.
Some states disallow sales of homemade food from other states, even though they allow their own citizens to sell homemade food in their state.
