Farmers Market---What have I gotten into?
In two weeks I'll start selling at a local farmers market. I'm doing jams and baking and a friend is selling produce. It's the first time for both of us.
I'm open to all suggestions and ideas. What have you bought? What would you like to find? Do you remember what you paid?
I walked the farmer's market yesterday and looked at prices. This is in an upscale resort town, right across the street from the main business district and in the park over looking the yacht harbor. There is a small cruise docked right now that cruises the Great Lakes with about 150 passengers.
If you have done baking for a farmers mkt, what do you find you can do ahead? What are your best sellers? Please add recipes if you can.
Any packaging ideas?
One thing I'm planning on making is the Pretzel Rolls. I just received my order for the actual pretzel salt. I'm trying to be a bit different than others, there is at least 10-15 other baking booths. The big thing here seems to be bagels, scones and quick breads. Pies are also pretty big, in the $12.00 to $15.00 range. I'm wondering about doing a 5" pie and a hand held (like a turnover but with a butter crust).
