Here are some tips for 5 popular baked goods that will sell at market. If it sells it makes the hard work worthwhile. Right?
Farmers’ Market baking is a lot of work, but a great return if you have a great product.
1. Home Made Bread
Bread is a great seller at the farmers markets that I have attended. People love home made bread and hate to make it. They either hate to make it or don’t have time in their busy lives.
Basically the two types of bread that are most popluar are yeast bread and sour dough bread.
I make yeast bread. I make the best looking and tasting bread that I possibly can. I package them in plastic bags with a great looking label that lists ingredients and contact details.
