What are Cottage Foods?

~ Cottage Food Operation Permit ~

In 2011, the WA legislature revised state law to create alternatives for small food business entrepreneurs.  The Cottage Food Operation Permit allows for low-risk

food products to be made in a home domestic kitchen and be sold directly to the consumer.  This practice was previously not allowed as a Food Processing License.  This law has helped create a new category of value-added food products that can be sold from home, at farmers markets, bazaars & the Cottage Bakers & Foodcrafters Market.

~ Information Session ~

  • Representatives from the WSDA Food Safety and Consumer Services Division, which is the entity implementing the Cottage Food Law, were invited by Cottage Bakers Market to hold a helpful and fact-filled session at the Bellevue Public Library.  Topics covered included 
  • application process, 
  • allowable foods, 
  • labeling requirements, 
  • kitchen conditions and equipment
  • safe food handling practices,
  • fees, and many others.
