Being a vendor at a farmers market is an exciting, dynamic, enriching experience, but it is different than other methods of sales. If you haven’t sold or a new at a farmers market, it’s a good idea to consider some basic information.
Passion: A passion is something you love or have a strong desire to offer. What do you do the best and love the most?
Product: Offer a product is that is unique to you. Your product should be at its peak of perfection and presented in its best quality, taste and appearance.
Professionalism: Nothing can bring your business to a halt faster than not adhering to local rules and regulations. Do your research, know your stuff, keep your word and respect others. Secure the necessary permits and licenses.
People: Your love for people is key for your success at a farmers market. People come to the market to see YOU as well as your product. They want to know you are happy to see them.
Place: Once you have identified your passion and product, and are sure of your professionalism and love of people, you have to decide where you want to sell your product. Just as products are unique, not all farmers markets are the same. We suggest you research the culture, people and products of each farmers market before you make your selection.
