Come to the August 17th Bay Area Homemade Market to build community resilience while indulging in local artisan food by supporting the Sustainable Economies Law Center!

BAHM is organizing the August 17th Market in collaboration with the Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC), and proceeds will go towards our continuing efforts to remove legal barriers to small-scale food enterprises in California. SELC spearheaded the campaign for the California Homemade Food Act and lobbied for its passage, enabling homemade food enterprises like the ones featured at the Bay Area Homemade Market (BAHM). SELC is currently working on ensuring smooth implementation of the new law and is contemplating further related legislation. Furthermore, SELC is working on a bill to legalize urban agriculture throughout California and is working on simplifying the process for backyard-grown produce to be used in cottage food operations and sold to restaurants.

What does this mean for you? You can enjoy these nano-local food businesses and participate in community resilience.

At this month’s Bay Area Homemade Market, you’ll be able to show your support for SELC and their work. BAHM vendors are all contributing to a basket of artisan treats to be raffled off at the market in support of the organization that enabled their business. Come hungry, with your checkbook and ready to legalize local.

Admission to the August Market will be $5-10 sliding scale and half of all admissions will go directly to Sustainable Economies Law Center!

Don’t think you can make the market but want to support SELC? Donate here!

 

The Bay Area Homemade Market is a place for the community to discover amazing, local Cottage Food businesses making artisan food out of their homes! With the passing of the Homemade Food Act in 2012, home bakers, chefs and food creators can now legally sell their delicious treats to the public. The Homemade Market allows them to connect to the community and allows you to sample and buy these unique, local, small-batch foods.  BAHM supports local food artisans who have only been able to start home businesses to sell their delicious wares with the passing of the Homemade Food Act! The Homemade Food Act is a huge step for strengthening the local food system and the Bay Area Homemade Market lets you take part in it! 

The Bay Area Homemade Market happens about once a month and is your chance to support these super local, start-up food artisans. It lets you support community members while discover organic olive oil crackers, salted caramel cupcake, raw health bars and more! You can stay updated by signing up for our free mailing list here! If you are interested in being a vendor, please fill out this application. We are also always looking for volunteers to help make the Market a smashing success! Apply to volunteer here!
