Pizzas in Peril

We had this notion of selling pizzas at the market, and though we knew that there would be some logistical hurdles to doing it, I didn't realize how serious it really was. I should have known better. This whole process of figuring things out was not without its share of drama.

First off, we have to answer to the state. I contacted the proper agency and got the rundown on what's expected of us. Needless to say, there are pages of rules and regulations that are required when you sell food to the general public. Fresh water supplies, wastewater disposal, cleanliness, hygiene, just to name a few.

After discussing it with R, we feel it's not insurmountable, but something that simply needs to be investigated, at the very least. And as is often the case with these sort of things, they are not as bad as they seem. After all, farmer's markets go on all over the state, and people sell food all the time.

This might very well turn into a big drama, however, so stay tuned. Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Danilo Takano for the pic.
