Unfortunately that would not be allowed. If you want customers to be able to enjoy your baked goods with iced tea, the easiest way is to buy bottles from the store and resell them at your booth. Check with your market manager to see if there’s a reseller’s permit required to do so. To sell your own iced tea, you’d need to make it in a commercial kitchen.

I now have home bakery license and bring some of my baked goods to sell at markets and I was wondering, is it possible to sell homemade iced tea to customers? (Iced tea in a big jug and filled with ice)

It would not be allowed because of the type of food it is. You will need to use a commercial kitchen. http://forrager.com/faq/#commercial

You ultimately need to move production to a commercial kitchen. But I’d recommend focusing on getting it to take off before worrying about that.

You do not need a license from the ag dept, though you might need a business license from your city, county, or state.
Because you are so specialized, you might want to consider moving your production into a commercial kitchen as soon as possible so that you can sell to other states.

You will need to contact the ag dept to learn about everything you can and cannot do, but generally, you should be able to ship within the state of Ohio (no interstate sales).
Figuring out permitting requires potentially contacting a number of local govt departments: http://forrager.com/faq/#starting

David Crabill replied to the topic Kettle Corn in the forum Ohio 6 years, 11 months ago
You don’t need any permit from the ag dept to sell kettle corn in-person or to grocery stores and restaurants, but there may be local requirements, like a business license. Also, you probably can’t sell anywhere, since zoning laws restrict where business activities can take place. http://forrager.com/faq/#starting
