Hi! Thx I’ve found this thread before starting my old idea. As an old-school brewer and latte fan, I’ve been wanting to open a little coffee shop. Also purchased some additional latte stuff – Nespresso machines, new grinder etc. I never thought about it from the standpoint of the law, so I’m going to get to know everything, and I’m going to write…[Read more]

I’d recommend checking with your local ag dept. Because it’s generally low-risk, sometimes there are special rules that allow someone to sell home-brewed coffee, or even coffee that’s brewed on-site (like at a market).

Hoping someone can give me direction on this, I’ve searched to the best of my abilities with no luck , and may have possibly missed it.

Good Morning, PA. I’m looking for residents in Montgomery (or Bucks) county who started a business baking from their home kitchen. This is something I’m looking to do and would like to connect with others who have done this to learn from their experiences. Thanks, Judy

You should be able to do this from home with PA’s cottage food law, but if you want or need to rent a commercial kitchen, then you need to contact the ag dept to determine what’s required. You should also contact the farmers market manager to learn about additional requirements they may have.

I am located in Pittsburgh PA. I want to sell my baked goods at local farmers markets, and need to find out what licenses i will need to be compliant. If I am baking in a commercial kitchen that I found on Kitchenincubator.com, do I just need a retail license and farmer’s market vendor license? Please help!
