It really depends. Some states have exemptions for small producers of 'bake sale' type goods and jams and such. Here in MT, you fill out a form and do a little back and forth paperwork with the health department and you're good to go as a small producer of specific items at a farmer's market. It would actually be wether or not the state has that kind of exemption with their health department or not.
