Farmers Markets have been around for a long while but are starting to become a popular place for people to shop again. They are a great place to buy local and handmade goods, at reasonable prices. If you’re thinking about renting a spot in one, here are some things you should think about.
Perfect Your Setup
Before setting up your booth, you should do a trial run at home. This will allow you to play with different setups and see which way works best for you. Take pictures of the final look that you like so when you arrive at the market, you’ll know exactly how you’ll want things done.
Display Your Products
No matter what you are selling, you want to place your items in a way where people find it enticing to come and visit. You may want to invest in hot food display equipment if you are looking to sell meals or snacks. If you are selling smaller products, be sure they are placed on high shelves or trivets so people can better see what you have to offer.
Decorate Your Booth
If you only throw your items on your booth and just expect people to come to buy from you, you might find you won’t sell so much. You have to make your table appealing and eye-catching for those who are walking by. Make a colorful sign and decorate your booth so it’s appealing to all customers. Sprucing up your table can go a long way in getting customers.
Consider Starting Small
Because you are just starting out, you may want to try some smaller markets before joining a large one. It will give you a chance to see how things are run and how your products will do. You could really perfect your booth before heading out to larger markets where there is likely to be more business.
Being a part of a Farmers Market could really grow your business. It’s a great way to get your product out without having to try and find customers on your own.
