Farmers’ Market Food Sales

Food Sales at Farmers’ Markets

Retail food sales are regulated by the Kansas Department of Agriculture. The objective is to ensure that all foods offered for sale are safe and wholesome. For additional information please view Farmers’ Markets in Kansas.

The sale of non-potentially hazardous foods, which are foods that do not require temperature control for safety or specialized processing, is allowed at farmers’ markets and similar locations without a food establishment license. Non-potentially hazardous foods include baked goods, such as cookies, breads, cakes, cinnamon rolls and fruit pies. Other non-potentially hazardous foods include fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and honey.

  • Home-grown produce may be sold, provided that any pesticide use complies with label directions. KDA recommends following Good Agricultural Practices. More information is available here.
  • Packaged products must be labeled with the common name of the product, and the name and address of the producer.
  • Ready-to-eat, potentially hazardous foods may only be sold from a vendor operating in compliance with all applicable regulations.
  • The sale of potentially hazardous foods is prohibited without a food establishment license.
  • Ungraded eggs may be sold by small producers (51 to 250 hens) if maintained at 45°F or less. Very small producers (1-50 hens) do not have to maintain eggs at 45°F or less, but it is strongly recommended to reduce the chance of illness. More information about egg sales is available here.
  • Home-canned products, except traditional jams and jellies, are prohibited without proper licensing.
  • All foods on sale or display must be effectively protected from contamination.

The sale of potentially hazardous foods is restricted to protect the public from foodborne illness. Potentially hazardous foods consist in whole or in part of milk, milk products, eggs, meat, poultry, fish, sprouts, cut leafy greens, heat treated vegetables, heat treated starches and cut produce. Examples include:
