In PHOENIX, AZ: What website do i go to to read up on the laws of in-home bakeries? I would google it but for some reason, all of my search engines are blocked! dont know how to fix that! a direct bewsite would be very helpful! THANKS!
I don't live in PHOENIX But I think You should start with your Health Dept, Code Enforcement Office, And Dept Of Agriculture, since those are the people you have to go through anyway
In Maricopa County everything is handled by the Environmental Health Division. Here is their website: http://www.maricopa.gov/EnvSvc/EnvHealth/
If you are bored, you can read Chapter 8 of the Health Code here: http://www.maricopa.gov/EnvSvc/AboutUs/HealthCode.aspx
If you don't feel like reading it, I can tell you that commercially selling food products made in a private residence is not allowed.
FWIW, There are literally hundreds of people in the Phoenix area doing it, and many of them advertise everywhere, so while the ENVSC prohibits it, they don't actually care or enforce their rules.
Of course, I'm not encouraging anyone to break the law and risk fines etc should you get busted, I'm just stating facts.
Lived in az and actually started my business there had no idea that you can't. No one asked for licenseing ever, but now I know better and wouldn't do it.
