Indiana is one of the greatest agricultural centers in not only America, but the world. In part because of its largely rural population, Indiana centralized many licenses and regulatory functions at the state level. Entrepreneurs can expect to get most of their licenses and permits through various state agencies and enjoy relatively little regulation at the local level.
In Indiana, farmer’s Markets and Outdoor Market Booths are becoming increasingly common as consumers around the nation embrace buying produce and other goods directly from local growers. Many counties and cities require produce sellers to hold special licenses, and all booths selling prepared foods need special permits.
