Farmers Market

May
3


I’m stopping in at our little town farmers market today to see if I can sell anything. My cousin will be there selling his cornmeal and other things. He convinced me to go, too. I’ll be selling candles, preserves, eggs, breads, maybe pies, we’ll see. I’m not taking much today–we can’t stay long before we have to head to master gardener class #9. (Ten classes in all, which means I’ll be done next week!)

    Suzanne, that is great! I am so proud of you. Congrats on the MG classes as well, I know that is a hard course. One day….sigh.

    Be well,

    Billie

    Suzanne,
    What are the preserves you show in the picture? Have you posted the recipes for them? (I do remember the orange slices in triple sec one). They look delicious. Good luck at the farmer’s market. I love going to the one near me.

    Good luck with the market. I always enjoy stopping and talking to all of the vendors. Where did you get the cute egg carton?

    Wow….I haven’t seen an egg carton like that in 30 years! That used to be the norm back then.
    Have a great time at the farmers market. Hope you do well!

    I wish I lived near you. I would buy something- or some things!

    The egg cartons came from here:

    I hope you sell all your wonderful creations! I’d worry that I would spend all my earnings!

    It’ll be interesting to hear how it goes! Whenever I take things I wind up trading most of my stuff with others at the “Saturday Market” we have in our little town. No money changes hands except from outsiders, but us locals at least go home with ‘different’ stuff!

    I bet you’re getting all sorts of valuable reference material and information sources. Will you be on duty with the local extension office to help answer questions? You must be absorbing so much great info!

    Your jars are really nice looking :) I was thinking about setting up shop at the farmer’s market this year and selling mini pies. I’ve been having a hard time finding packaging though. If anyone knows of a spot that they could share that’d be great :D

    Laurielee,

    A website called webstaurantstore.com carries a wide assortment of packaging and mini disposable pans. You can find them through Amazon as well. Their prices on cupcake liners are great. I saw small pie boxes with windows.

    If you have a local Amish store nearby, they often carry the various small foil pans.

    Good luck!

    Good for you to take your things to sell at the local market!! A great place to network and to buy locally grown food – even if you just “trade” with other vendors. Your preserves look great! You are one ambitious lady!!!

    Have fun at the farmer’s market and I pray you sell everything you take.

    AnnieB, Do you mean a cardboard egg carton? They are still available where I live. I won’t buy eggs sold in a plastic carton. It annoys me that so-called organic or free range sellers damage the environment by using persist-forever plastic cartons.

    KarenAnne, I think she means the particular cardboard egg carton in the picture. That’s a vintage-style egg carton.

    Alas, I was delayed getting out of here yesterday afternoon, and since I also had to get to master gardener class, that didn’t give me any time to take my stuff to the farmers market. I probably won’t have time to do it until after master gardener class is over, though I may try again next week if I can get out of here earlier so that I have time to set my stuff up!

    Ooooo. Liability insurance for candlemakers is CRAZY priced. Does your homeowners cover your making candles in your little studio? Most don’t.

    Just sayin’…..

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
