A Certified Agricultural Producer, or representative thereof, is an individual who wishes to sell regionally-grown products in the public right-of-way.
Regionally-grown products are those produced within Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia.
A Certified Agricultural Producer, or representative thereof, may sell only fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, cut flowers, small trees, or plants, which he or she has produced. A Certified Agricultural Producer may also sell non-potentially-hazardous prepackaged goods (including eggs), with the approval of the Licensure and Regulatory Services Section of the Department of Health and Human Services (240) 777-3986.
A prospective Certified Agricultural Producer must complete an application form and submit it to the Department of Permitting Services.
Regionally-grown products may be sold only by a Certified Agricultural Producer or representative thereof. Only authorized products may be offered for sale at an approved site.
The fees are $25.00 for in-county producers, and $100.00 for the out-of-county producers. An additional 10% Automation Enhancement Fee is charged on the cost(s) listed above.
The normal processing time for certification is two business days from the date of application. The Department of Permitting Services reserves the right to delay issuance of a license if application requirements are not met or further information is required.
