Anyone know if it's legal to prep food in commercial kitchen and then bake and deliver pies from (let's say your driveway).  Food would never enter your house.  I live in IL by the way.
If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball.

Looks like that law is for preparing non hazardess products at home but selling at farmers markets.

"According to the Illinois Stewardship Alliance; “The cottage food bill changes Illinois’ food safety law to allow the production of  “non-potentially hazardous” homemade baked goods, jams and jellies, fruit butter, dried herbs, dried tea blends etc to be sold at farmers markets provided they are properly labeled as homemade products"

Or you're right, it is exclusive to farmers markets. Sorry.

Rats.  How are Farmers Markets any different then baking outside your house?  Probably has to do with being audited.
