Prohibited items: Food items

The sale of homemade prepared food is subject to regulatory guidelines and often requires a permit. Because we can't enforce these restrictions, prepared food is not allowed. Examples:

  • Most perishable goods, including meat, seafood, dairy, and cut fruits or vegetables
  • Homemade shelf products, such as jams, jellies, and pickles
  • Homemade meals or baked goods
  • Eggs sold outside of the seller's farm

Exceptions to this policy include:

  • Whole, uncut fruits and vegetables
  • Eggs sold directly on the seller's farm
  • Unopened and packaged commercially sold food goods (canned soup, packages of cookies, etc.) as long as the packaging has not been tampered with and the items are sold before their expiration date

See our full list of prohibited items.
