Really wondering how legal are those who sell the jams and so on the street or at the fairs and so... i honestly don't believe that they have paid those insane amount of cash...
I think you're right, and doubt very much that they've paid such fees. That level of expense would make sense only if one were to be launching a huge operation, starting at zero and intending to blast and dominate the market.

For the rest, starting out small, to test the waters, as it were, and hope that it'll work out and even support them, I think they probably ask the organisors of the fair for the rules. And then they probably get referred to the cantonal rules for Lebensmittelkontrolle, such as, for example:

St. Gallen: https://www.sg.ch/gesundheit-soziale...sbetriebe.html
Luzern: https://lebensmittelkontrolle.lu.ch/...en_Raeumen.pdf
Zürich: https://www.zh.ch/de/gesundheit/lebensmittel.html

Then, for the aspects that are not to do with food hygiene, they work out their rough bookkeeping, and then attend a workshop at Startups https://www.startups.ch/, or similar, to see whether they've remembered to deal with all the numbers, and understood how the Swiss laws for small businesses work.
