Granite City's Melting Pot Market hasn't allowed vendors to sell homemade goods like jelly and baked goods during its 3 years in business, but that has changed since Illinois enacted the Cottage Law. This law allows vendors to sell these things after passing a 15 hour sanitation test and paying a $50 registration fee.
Here's the line in the story which is arguably the most over the top description of saleable food I've ever read:
"The law allows non-potentially hazardous foods, like apple pie, dried oregano or peach preserves, to be produced in a home kitchen and sold at open-air farmers markets."
It's nice to know apple pie and oregano are now not considered hazardous.
In other news, Granite City has a farmers market?
