What to sell at Farmers Markets?

Sell at farmers markets

What to sell at farmers markets is always a tricky question. 2 things come in to play here. What can you make to sell at a farmers market and what does the customer want? Taking the time to find out what to sell at the farmers market will reap benefits with increased sales. There is no point in making the world’s best widget if at the market no one wants to buy a widget or a bucket full of widgets.

This is where you need to be flexible and resourceful. If you are neither flexible or resourceful you need to find another market for your widgets!!

When I first started going to a farmers’ market I took a number of different products. Looking back I was inadvertently testing the market. I didn’t even realise that I was doing this. I made jam, peanut brittle, smoked salmon, beef jerky, bread, muffins,  lemonade. Whatever my wife and I cooked that was REALLY GOOD, we would make and take to market. Eventually the market customers decided for us what they wanted to buy and therefore what we should make and take! It really didn’t matter to me what I took to market as long as I brought none of it or little home.

Over the following posts I will go through step by step ideas on what to sell on how to set up your booth and be a success.
