Baked Goods at the Artist Alley?

Postby VeniceQueen17 » Sat May 09, 2015 12:27 pm

Good afternoon everyone!

I was curious as to whether or not baked items (i.e. cookies, cupcakes, etc.) would be sold at the Artist Alley, assuming they were themed/decorated to things relating to Youma. Michigan has a Cottage Food law, allowing baked goods to be sold even if they were not produced in a USDA inspected kitchen, as long as everything is labeled correctly. Obviously, only certain foods are protected under this law. Here is the link to learn more about Cottage Foods:

Basically, I want to sell Pokemon cookies and cake balls that look like Pokeballs and I wonder if this is allowed at Youma.

Thanks for any feedback! :D

No, and I think this is a Cobo Rule. The vendors only sold prepackaged candy, and I remember on the AA rules for last year, you couldn't sell food products.

Due to the contract Youmacon has with the convention Hall, the Artists cannot sell foods. Also I'm guessing another reason is it would be a violation of the Health and Safety Department because the food was not prepared in a placed 'certified' by the Health Department.

Well Michigan actually has the Cottage Food law, as long as food is labeled properly you can sell it even if it's not in a licensed kitchen (most baked goods fall under this law) BUT I kind of figured Youmacon/Cobo had something worked out preventing this. It makes sense!

Thanks guys! :)
