Anyone have any experience with starting a microgreen business...particularly Texas? I've been digging on the internet and calling every state department about this and I keep hearing different things or nothing at all.

I don't have experience with a Microgreen business, though I have started a business in Texas.

If you want to sell to businesses as opposed to selling at a farmers market there might be some regulations.

You might try starting with your local City or County Government to see if a business permits or license is require. This can be done online.

Before starting to do business you would need to contact the Texas Comptroller's office for a Tax Id Number.  This will be required for Tax purposes and probably by businesses that you want to do business with.

I'm working on starting a sprouts and microgreens booth at the farmers market in about a month. It is pretty simple, just call your local farmers market manager and ask them what you need to have a booth. They can let you know what paper work you need for the city, state and county you are in. I spent hours researching what permits etc I needed and got the same answer in a ten minute chat!
How did your microgreens business turn out?
