Does this mean if a mom gets the required stuff, she can now legally do bake sale-type things? I know a non-profit that wasn't allowed to have a bake sale at an event, as the goodies (cupcakes, brownies, cookies, etc) weren't made in a commercial kitchen. (I know not everyone has issues with this, but for those that do, this might be a great way to deal with restrictions on selling bake sale items.)

They'll be having a "Local Artisans Market" at La Cumbre Plaza on Fridays and at the Goleta Valley Community Center on Saturdays. I'm so excited!

I miss the tri tip bbq sales at high school sporting events but I guess any school (PTA) could do it.....

I think the Elks, Moose and Rotaries used to sponsor it at different times, different schools.

You eat it there or buy it uncut and take it home, I asked about starting it again,but it was no go, to much liability....

This is long overdue. What scares me is the big corp food; remember the Jalisco cheese, 45 dead. Glad the little guy is getting a break for once.

570: Whoa. I hadn't heard of that outbreak (I was 1 at the time...). That is incredibly scary. And a NYT article said 62 deaths, including still borns. HORRIBLE. I'll take homemade stuff any day...

Ond day it will explode when we realize that every packaged item typically found within a grocery store is laden with GMO. It will end up that GMO has contributed significantly to the various metabolic disorders. It has not been just sugar and salt.

The real blame is governmental policies that favored unhealthy farm subsidies in corn, soy, meat and dairy. Of course the industry authored or cowrote many of the legislation that pleases not only big ag and denatured food products, but the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

Amazing! The government actually has the capability to backpedal from monstrous bureaucratic legal restrictions and support local sustainable food production that doesn't require an investment of millions. Excellent news.

When is the County going to allow on-site prepared food at the farmers' markets? The Saturday market at the Ferry Building in San Francisco is filled with vendors cooking and grilling meats, vegies and seafood for noshing while shopping, and it makes for an incredible combined eating and shopping experience. Heck, even the Sunday farmer's market in Ojai has a vendor selling freshly steamed tamales for consumption on site!
If food safety is the issue, the County ought to ban most mass produced, supermarket-sold meats, eggs, poultry, cheese and produce given how many thousands of Americans suffer food poisoning every year from this supposedly "safe" supply chain.

Me? I'll take food prepared in a properly cleaned, professional, health-inspected kitchen over home-prepared any day. I've been in way too many homes where the cats are on the counters and it's way to easy not to properly clean your hands or sanitize your dishes when no one's looking.

Health department inspections started for a reason, people!
