Bake Sales as Fundraisers

Bake sales are occasional events where homemade donated baked goods are sold for fundraising purposes. Please see our bake sales guidelines.


Potlucks are communal meals to which people bring food to share. They are private events and not public or for commercial purposes. Examples are family reunion potlucks, funeral dinner potlucks, or office party potlucks. To see if your food event qualifies as a potluck event, read the potluck portion (Section 3.1) of the Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act.

Farmers' Markets & Food Product Sampling

For information about farmers' markets and food product sampling for farmers' market vendors, please see Sections 3.3 and 3.4 of the Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act. For information about obtaining a farmers' market food product sampling handler certificate, please see the Illinois Department of Public Health's website. Contact them at (217) 782-7532 if you have any questions about the certification process.

Cottage Food Operations

The cottage food law allows operators to prepare certain food or drink items in their home kitchen and sell them at farmers' markets. Cottage food operators must register with the local health department in the county where the operator's primary domestic residence is located. For information about the cottage food law, please see the cottage food portion (Section 4.0) of the Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act. The University of Illinois Extension office also provides information about the cottage food law. For information about home canning, please see the USDA home canning guide.

Below is a current list of registered cottage food operations in Champaign County. Please be advised that being registered with the local health department does not equal being inspected and permitted by the local health department. Yearly registration is required (calendar year).
