Beer and Wine Taste-Tests at Farmers Markets? Maybe

The big talk during this legislative session will be, of course, about cutting the budget. However, many bills will be introduced (and will likely never make it out of committee) to address any number of issues.

Among those many pieces of suggested legislation is a bill that could pave the way for beer and wine tastings at farmers markets, according to a story from the Seattle Times. Tastings would have to be two ounces or less, and only four ounces per customer.

Last year, the Legislature allowed grocery stores to allow wine and beer tastings, though if there have been any locally, I missed them.

So far, this seems to be the only food-related bill, but it’s only the first day of this year’s session.
