A new rule requiring permits for homemade foods sellers went into effect on Jan. 1, 2010 in New Mexico.
The permits are mandated by the state Environment Department and will cost $100. This will allow the sale of homemade goods including baked goods, tortillas, jams and jellies, dry mixes and candies.
To obtain a permit, home-based food processors must pay the fee, attend food safety training and allow the New Mexico Environment Department to inspect their kitchens. This new permit process was introduced to monitor the safety of goods sold at farmers markets, roadside stands, fairs and fiestas.

How about the people who sell burritos out of the back of the trunk of their car. I use to live in El Paso, and there was a whole lot of that going on. It was one of those don't ask situations as far as being licensed.
