How do I market a family recipe?

 I would like to produce and dustribute my great grandmother's recipe for homemade raisin bread.  It's very unique to other raisin breads.  I've done taste testings with nothing but positive results.  How do I achieve a potentially successful idea that I am passionate about, but have no financial resources.  Where do I begin?

You could always start with your local farmer's market.  Unfortunately, Nevada doesn't have a cottage food law so you would have to find out, through your local ag or health department, what is required to sell baked goods at such a market.

If a commercial kitchen is required, church kitchens often fit the bill.

Best wishes for your success.

You're input was very helpful.  I definitely can explore those options.

Thanks again :)
