The cottage food laws in Arkansas require no registration, inspection, or training, making it really easy for anyone to get going quickly. However, producers can only sell their products directly at farmers markets, events, or from their homes, and they are only allowed to sell five types of products: bakery products, candy, fruit butter, jams, and jellies.
“Events” only refers to county fairs and special events.
Jams, jellies, and fruit butter made with splenda and similar sugar substitutes may not be sold.
