Everyone in Virginia knows that the "Cottage Food Law" was passed back in 2008. Yaaay!! But for some of us this Bill does not apply. I've made a few calls and now have the names of the cities in Hampton Roads that DO and DO NOT allow food processing from a residence. So even though we have this bill, the cities that have an ordinace stating "no food processsing" from a residence can not bake and sell from our homes, no matter what!!!!! It's very unfair and I intend to do something about it. I've already contacted my City Council about it, maybe you can too!!
Here are the cities,
NO~YOU CAN'T BAKE AND SELL FROM YOUR HOME
YES~ YOU CAN
Virginia Beach~ Yes
Hope this helps everyone in Hampton Roads!!
That's just crazy. Hope you can get it changed.
I'm shocked that Suffolk is a "no." I *know* there are people there that can their own products and sell them. You can just drive down some areas and see the signs. If I were closer, I'd be happy to come give a hand.
