Sell Your Extra Garden Produce!

Posted August 23, 2016

Looking to make a few extra dollars this growing season?  Why not sell your extra produce at a farmers market?  Markets are popping up all over the country and the need for good organic, fresh local produce is growing.  Whether you are a back yard gardener, farmer, or even urban gardener growing in containers, you can easily grow herbs, vegetables and even cut flowers that people are craving!

Farmers markets aren't just for for fresh produce, though.  Preserves, jams, jellies, breads and dried herbs are always a hit. 

Heirloom vegetables are so fun to grow and because there is such a massive variety you can't go wrong.  Grow a few different colors of heirloom tomatoes to add interest to your table.  Bag up some colorful lettuce mixes and add a touch of color with a few nasturtium flowers (which are eatable) in the mix.  Micro-greens are healthy and can be grown indoors.  Maybe even grow a nice selection of potted plants for people to grow their own healthful foods. 

Contact the organizers for your local farmers markets around you to learn about rules and costs (many are only $5) for a booth.

A table with a burlap covering, bushel baskets or crates to display your produce or wares are a simple and inexpensive way to create a cute market table that is pleasing to the eye.  Offer a few recipe cards for ingredients you sell.  Price your items clearly using creative ideas such as a piece of brown bag cut out with pinking shears and clipped to your baskets with a cloths pin.  Bring plenty, because you will most likely sell out!

Farmers markets can be a great place to meet other growers alike and future friends with common interests!
