Selling Baked Goods From Home Where To Sell My Cupcakes At

Updated on October 8, 2010

So you have always been told that you are a good baker and should open up a bakery or sell your baked goods somewhere. However, if you are like most of us you are nervous and scared about opening up your own bakery because of the economy faltering or you might not just have enough capital to qualify for a business loan that you need to make the equipment purchases that are needed to have a proper bakery. If that is the case for you then here are some ideas that can help you sell your bake goods that you might not have thought of trying before.

The first place that you can try to do with your bake goods is bake some samples that you can take to various smaller local coffee shops. I know that most areas you can easily find a small locally owned coffee shop that either bakes their own goods or has to order them from a supplier. Which most locally owned coffee shops in my experience would rather have the ability to purchase the baked goods that they sell from a local person rather than have to pay for the shipping and cost of their supplier or have to worry about the supplier deciding to stop carrying a product.

The second place that you might want to investigate selling your bake goods at would be going to local flea markets and seeing about renting a stall to sell your bake goods at. However, you will want to find out what the local regulations are prior to doing this to find out what you will have to comply to for the laws. So you will want to ask about this when you call to inquire about a space at a flea market because from time to time they will have the numbers that you need to be able to contact the proper person to find out what you need to do to be in compliance with the law.

The third place that you could try selling your bake goods to is at local farm stands during the summer months or craft shows in the winter months. Now for these places you might have to talk to the owner of the farm stand, or organizer of the craft show to ensure that baked goods would be acceptable to sell at their location.

While many people might tell you that your baking would sell you will never really know until you try to sell your bake goods at various stores. However, if you do not have the money to start your own bakery here are some great ideas of where you can sell your own baked goods.

      Zhayra, you may have to check with your local cottage home laws. I know they can really tell you more because in Ohio you do not need a license unless the products require refrigeration.

      Do you need a license to approach local coffe shops or pastry/bakery shop to sell your product.

      Yes it is a great thing to do because you are going to be around your family more than what you thought possible! I know that is why I started baking out of my own house and sold to local coffee shops. Another place that people have mentioned to sell at is approaching office buildings about setting up a little kiosk in the lobby during morning rush.
