Re: Farmers Markets
Mark, you ask "is it profitable?" but Iget the feeling you're more wondering if it's "profitable enough" as in, to earn a living from.
I personally know several folks who do make their living from selling at farmers markets, at leas t a good portion of it. I know others who make substantially less in terms of total income, but will at least break even over the costs of their table fee, etc...
Like I said earlier, I have found it more profitable to pay my own vendor fees to set my own market up when and how frequently I choose. The costs are then leveraged to my advantage vs the time I have any given week to set it up and run it.
Paying the booth fees at a farmers market, at least in my area, is more cost prohibitive because the people who operate the market itself are trying to make money of the table fees.
No, I am NOT a bee "Keeper". Anything I post is just my opinion. Take it easy and think for yourself.
