Proposal would allow at-home sales of garden veggies

A proposed amendment to the Denver Zoning Code would allow Denver residents to sell home-grown produce and some “cottage foods” at their residences, directly to consumers.
Councilwoman Robin Kniech, in collaboration with the Denver Sustainable Food Policy Council and LiveWell Denver, has proposed the change, with the intent of expanding access to healthy, affordable foods.

The proposed zoning change would allow at-home sales of:

  • Raw, uncut fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, grown in an on-site garden or community garden.
  • Whole eggs produced by chickens or ducks owned and kept by the individual at the home.
  • Cottage foods, which include non-potentially hazardous, unrefrigerated food products made on-site such as spices, teas, honey, jams, and certain baked goods, as defined in the Colorado Cottage Food Act.

NO marijuana or marijuana products are allowed. As proposed, sales would be allowed from 7 a.m. to dusk, indoors or outdoors, with one small window or wall sign allowed.

The amendment would help the city implement policy objectives to increase residents’ access to healthy foods, reduce obesity rates, and increase opportunities for self-sufficiency. City planners will present the proposed amendment to the Denver Planning Board on May 7. Learn more at the Denver Community Planning and Development website.
