Sizzlin' Sisters

Hi! My sister and I have recently decided to start baking bread out of our parents kitchen to sell at the local farmer's market! We somehow managed to win free groceries today when our bill was $260, so it must be meant to be! So far we've fallen in love with the baked potato bread (we decided to maked it "loaded" and added cheddar cheese and brushed the top with butter before baking...yum) and we're in the middle of the blueberry cream cheese braid (looks divine) and the bagels...I'm so excited this site is here!!! hooray to everyone here!

Depending on where you "sisters" live, there may be several restrictions about selling at Farmer's Markets. I've begun looking into myself here in So Cal, and the requirements include using a "commercial" kitchen that has passed inspection by the Health Dept., procuring a business license, and having a Food Handlers Certificate. I'm not trying to burst your bubble, just don't want you to start baking all kinds of goodies just to find out that you haven't met the requirements for selling them. And MOST states require some or all of the above items too... Good luck with your venture!!!

thanks for the heads up. We're in NC and the law here requires the home kitchen to pass an inspection and it must be a pet free home. Since we both have dogs we're hoping our parents will let us use theirs.


So far we've been pretty lucky in our venture...our test breads have turned out beautifully...if anyone has some interesting breads we should try out I'd love to hear about them! :)
