    1. I think it depends on how large your farmer’s market is! Ours was little and people wanted handmade, home grown, and fresh from the oven kind of things and I don’t think they would have done well, but it your market has a large crowd you might have different results for sure.

  1. I have sold items at Farmers Markets. In the past, I have sold eggs (they sold like crazy. I was usually out in the first 1 1/2 hrs of the market), and beaded jewelry I made. Last summer, I was hired to cater a wedding. Since I had not had experience doing that sort of thing before, I sold prepared food at the Farmer’s Market to get me prepared in cooking the items and packaging it up for a large amount of people. My daughters have started their own homemade animal treat company. So we are preparing to sell that this year at our Farmer’s Market.

    1. Animal treats are the best! I made a lot on those too! We live near the world largest no-kill animal sanctuary so their are all kinds of dog people at the market! I’m telling you what though, that lemonade, made to order was my cash crop! My recipe is on here, you all should try it this year!

  2. There is a great book I want desperately called “sewing to sell” that gives 16 patterns for you to sew and permission to sell them wherever you like 🙂 it’s pretty new but I know a lot of libraries are stocked with the book too. It also gives you tips on starting a home business.
