Missouri has two different laws that allow homemade food sales, which combine to create an overall good cottage food law. Producers can use both laws, if they’d like.
Missouri’s other cottage food law allows producers to sell most nonperishable foods at events and roadside stands, with very few restrictions.
This law is very specific in nature, and quite restrictive as a result. Under this law, producers can only sell nonperishable baked goods, jams, jellies, and herbs.
Producers can also only sell products from home, which includes selling online and fulfilling orders that are delivered or shipped in-state.
There is no sales limit, and producers don’t need to get a permit from the health department or take a training course.
You can sell at farmers markets, events, and roadside stands by using Missouri’s other cottage food law.
You can sell most other types of nonperishable foods by using Missouri’s other cottage food law.
The label must state that the food was not inspected by the health department
