Farmers Market, Vendors

You love visiting the outdoor market in Frisco, and now you are thinking about having your own booth. That is great news! Farmer’s markets are a great way to sell your homegrown produce, homemade canned items, and even craft items.

6 Tips For Farmer’s Market Booth Success

You keep thinking about it, but you are not sure where to start or if you can make it work out for you. The great news is that it is easy to set up a vendor booth at these markets, and if you use the following tips, you can easily become a popular and profitable booth.

  1. Talk To The Market Owner To Find Out the Rules

    Every market has rules about what they want at their markets and how it is displayed. Some markets may require that you put up a canopy to designate your booth. Others may require that you only use six-foot tables instead of eight. Find out the rules before you set up, so you have the right tools to start your venture.

  2. Make Nice Displays

    Use tablecloths, baskets, step displays, or other similar items to display your goods. You do not want your tables to look flat. When you have a visually appealing table and
    people will stop. It does not have to be fancy, but it should have some depth so that the eyes look at the different items when passing.

  3. Make Sure Everything Is Priced

    People feel uncomfortable when they have to ask for prices. Make sure your products are marked clearly so that your visitors can make their decisions without feeling like they are a burden.

  4. Think About Free Samples

    Do you have a really good crop of melons this year? Cut one into small pieces so your visitors can try it before buying. Farmer’s market vendors that offer free samples see their products moving faster than other vendors who do not.

  5. Be Friendly

    This sounds like a silly tip, but it is important to remember. Too often, people become nervous when they set up their stand and stand quietly in their vendor booth while people look around. Start a conversation, and ask if there is anything you can help them find. Compliment them on their shirt. Whatever it takes to break the silence. They will be more apt to buy if they feel like you are friendly.

  6. Be Prepared For Your Day

    You are going to be working outside at your booth all day. Make sure you have a bunch of water to drink, snacks to keep you going, sunscreen, and sun-protective clothing. Nothing can ruin your day more than feeling sick or having a headache because you are overheated, thirsty, or need a bite to eat.
