So.. Here we go.. I'm getting some info to sell at the farmers market in my city, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I carefully read the rules documents.. I couldnt believe what i read!
The 80% of my ingredients must come from the local farmers! that means everything I buy in a regular grocery store, like flours, eggs, chocolate, cream cheese are not allowed! What if I use box mix and not the regular flour?
Now I start to understand why there are just a couple of baker at the market and why noone has cupcakes, pies o cakes!
Even if I would start buying what I need from the local farmers, that would increase A LOT my cost and my prices!
This is very frustrating.. I also checked the rules of the ABQ farmers market (1h and hald driving from SF), they seem to be more reasonable..
But they request few license from the city of Albuquerque of course. Can I get them even if my kitchen in Santa Fe, which has a different food processing license?
I really wanted to attent the farmers market to put my name out there since I just moved here, but I dont really think I'll be able to, so what to do? any suggestion?
