you're suppose to be but etsy doesnt check
In Louisiana, you don't need a license to sell baked goods at the local farmers' market, because the incidence of bacteria is very low in baked goods, so I doubt it. I'll ask a baking friend. ♥ Love, Helen
Yes. It's up to the individual shops to get appropriately licensed per their states' requirements.
How you figure out how in the heck to mail stuff between states legally is beyond me though.
Yes, you do need a license to sell any food items on Etsy.
I don't know about the license thing but I wanted to put my $.2 worth about opening a baked goods store. Make sure you disclose allergy info. I love baked foods from other people's kitchen but my little one has severe food allergies where she stops breathing. So we tend to stay away unless I know what's in them.
etsy doesn't check but I believe you can be heavily fined if you are caught and don't have a license.
If you don't have a license there are plenty of people that won't buy from you either.
Great suggestions. I will keep all that in mind... I'm off to do more research! Thanks
Check out the FDA website for info regarding baked goods. Because you would be selling across state line, just your local regulations won't cut it.
