Selling at a Farmer’s Market in Utah

So there are many Market’s across this great country that you can sell your stuff, but one place that I thoroughly enjoy selling to people is Utah, more specifically Salt Lake City.  You may ask why… well let me tell you.Farmers Market

Autumn, during this wonderful time of year the cool air with the changing leaves makes a beautiful background to most any venue.  They usually have some fun activities for the whole family.  There are usually hay rides and warm apple cider.  (must remember you are in Mormon land)

Sometimes there may be a little snow on the ground, but that is ok, because the people that show up to sell or buy at these type of Farmer’s Markets are full of cheer no matter what the weather is like.

It can be very profitable as well, so just imagine, friendly people great Autumn weather and money in your pocket.

I can think of no better way to send a Saturday morning, but then again I love to sell stuff and meet cool people in the process.  Of course good weather can help.

What to sell at a Farmer’s Market

Sep 9, 2015 by

What to sell at a Farmer’s Market

Just like any business venture, if you are going to become part of the local Farmer’s Market you will need to have something to sell. This should be as easy as figuring out what will sell.

 

Needless to say if we could all figure out what would be hot in the marketplace, we would all be millionaires! But since no one can predict what will sell from week to week, it is best to sell what you might buy, what you can produce, what you can make, bake, create.

 

Knowing your own likes and dislikes is half the battle in deciding what to sell. If you don’t like the taste or texture of kale, chances are you will not be able to sell it successfully. But if you adore the crisp crunch of fresh carrots and you can grow them by the bunch, you can sell every one you can pick.

Goods to Sell at Farmers Market

If you have a garden and plan ahead for a farmer’s market, you can sell your produce. Corn, beans, peas, melons, whatever you like and can grow you can sell. Not everyone has a green thumb, but those who frequent farmer’s markets want fresh, good produce and that is where you will come in.

How to Earn Money at a Farmers Market

How to make Money at a Farmer Market

Can you bake? Do you can fruits or vegetables or make jam or wine or have bees to collect honey? Is your garden producing more zucchini than you can shake a stick at? Then get yourself a table at your local farmers market and make some extra spending money.

Every year during the last weeks of summer and early weeks of fall, towns across this country have farmer’s markets.
Some are huge markets covering several blocks along corridors of big cities. Some are quaint little markets set up by local organizations like County Extension offices, farmer’s co-ops or maybe churches or business organizations, for a quick afternoon of local fare, baked goodies and produce for sale. Whichever farmer’s market is in your area, if you have anything that you can make, bake, grow, or just a pile of books or a few antiques, you are what a farmer’s market is all about.

Becoming a farmers market vendor

Aug 5, 2015 by

If you are in need of a job, and you already have a farm and produce your own food, why not become a farmers market vendor? Besides the fact that you already have products which you are going to sell, and you probably already love working with food, you will make some money, and even eventually grow this into an imposing business. However, before you venture in such a thing, there are a couple of steps you need to take, in order to get the chance of selling your products on a farmers market.

1. Get everything you need

You will need to get everything that is necessary for you to become a farmers market vendor. You’ll need to have all the papers; you will need to prepare all the food you’re planning to sell; you will need to make sure you can handle this kind of work, etc. So, all in all, you need to be prepared.

2. Choose the product

Then, you will need to choose the product you wish to sell on the farmers market. Keep in mind that people usually like healthy food, and that is exactly what you should be focusing on. Also, you can focus on the food that people tend to buy every day, but that is not that cheap. That way, you will make more money, and will provide yourself with a healthy income.

3. Get all the certificates

This is extremely important, because it shows that your product is clear, and that it causes no health damages. Also, it will give you the much wanted advantage over the other vendors who don’t have this certificate, because your products are clearly healthier than theirs.

 4. Get the permit to sell

You will need to get in touch with the owner or manager of the farmers market, and get a permit to sell your product there. This permit is usually given to everyone, and you just have to pay for it. Also, while you’re there, ask them about the rules of the market, and try to do your best to honor them.

5. Plan your strategy

Every vendor out there has a strategy that will help him earn more money. Choose your strategy, and follow it. You can focus on stating that your food is extremely healthy, or you can focus on stating that your prices are low, or whatever you want.


6. Prepare yourself

Being a vendor on the market is hard work, and that is why you need to prepare yourself for this the night before. Make sure you pack everything you need to take with you before you go to bed. Also, sleeping is very important, because you are going to need a lot of energy for the next day. The next day, you will need to wake up early, and hit the farmers market with your product.
