I'd like to start an underground farmers' market, but I'm worried about regs and liability

I love food. I also love making food, from jerky to cheese, to pickles to canned goods, etc. Inspired by this project
in the Bay area, I'd like to explore the possibility of getting an underground farmers' market going in Austin, TX. I've read over the health dep't regulations, and they make it pretty clear that any non-bake sale food prepared for sale needs to be made in a commercial kitchen (expensive). Fresh veggies from your garden seem to be cool. Can I pull this off without getting myself or others into trouble? You are not my lawyer.
