    Please pass this bill if you haven’t already.
    I would be a great opportunity for budding entrepreneurs!

    I have been waiting for an opportunity to sell my baked goods but I have been discouraged by the regulations that require using a commercial kitchen, which are non-existent in my town. This would be a great opportunity for me to earn some much-needed extra money for my family. This would be a dream of mine; to be able to start out small by selling at a farmers market, building up my customer-base and potentially growing into owning my own bakery.. I’ve considered moving to another state that has the Cottage Food Law in place and allows for selling of baked goods at a farmers market until I came across this website that WI is considering passing this Cookie Bill!! I am excited and hope this gets passed. Please pass this bill!
