Michigan Bill Would Allow Farmers Market Wine Sales and Tasting

Posted: Updated:

A bill making its way through Lansing wants to allow wine sales at farmers markets.

Farmers markets like the one in Traverse City could allow small winemakers to sell wine and conduct tastings.

The bill would only cover producers who make less than 5,000 gallons of wine a year. There would be a 25 dollar permit fee and each person would be limited to three two ounce samples.

The market and the police would have to sign off on the idea.

The bill passed the state senate on Tuesday and now goes to house.
