    Do I need to get any permits to sell lemonade and cupcakes from a stand at the end of my driveway furring a subsale/ whole sub garage sale

    It’s illegal to run a lemonade stand in most parts of the country, without the proper permit and equipment. As far as selling non-perishable foods, like cupcakes, the cottage food law in your state would specify whether that’s possible. Regardless, zoning laws typically prevent people from advertising their businesses in a neighborhood, so they wouldn’t be able to setup a stand in front of their house. If you care about being completely legal, you should contact your health or ag dept.

    Despite the laws being fairly strict, many people open these types of stands, and although some get shut down by the police, there are usually not serious consequences. The consequences might be more severe if your stand was open on a regular basis.
