I sell handmade cards along with my fresh cut bouquets and veggies at our Farmers Market.

What do you think of selling high end micofiber products?

Is handmade childrens clothing and accessories would be good at farmers market?

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.

Can I have your lemonade recipe please?

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.
