Michigan Farmers Markets and Cottage Food Law

In Michigan, many home bakers participate at local farmers markets under the Cottage Food Law. This law allows bakers and makers to sell products from a kitchen that has not been inspected. However, they must still adhere to labeling laws. Therefore, any item sold at a market should have a complete list of ingredients

At this time, Michigan does not allow cottage food law businesses to ship their products. (This may soon change.) The law also stipulates that they may not sell to stores, restaurants or coffee shops. Cottage law bakers may take orders and sell direct to the consumer, outside of the market. 

I’ve organized a list according to geographic area, where you can find gluten free baked goods at various Michigan Farmers Markets. All baked goods are made in a dedicated gluten free kitchen, unless otherwise noted. Links to markets take you to their Facebook page, so you can easily get directions.
