Small roadside stand pics?

gardeningmom2fiveMarch 17, 2008

For the last few years, we have just used a table at the end of our drive for our veggies. This year, I would love to build a small roadside stand that looks more professional than what we have used in the past. Does anyone have pics they would be willing to post?

Hi, I am having trouble trying to post a picture of my stand but if you go to the address below, there are building plans for a couple different stands. The one I built is similar to #5983. If I can figure out how to include a photo I will post again.

Here ya go...#5983

Gee, this is why I can never build anything. My head started spinning as soon as I saw this diagram, lol. Just not made to be a carpenter, I guess.

Thank you for the webpage and link. I like the look of that one, however we need one even smaller. Like something that can be moved at the end of the season without to much trouble. I don't sell a ton either, so simple, but attractive is my goal :)This year, I will be selling tomatoes, peppers, beans, squash, and perennials mostly so I'm thinking 8ft-4ft would suffice. One of these days, I shall have my farm, and will have room for a REAL stand then lol.

I found this photo online a while ago (unfortunately, have lost the source...). It's a SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) merchant stand. It looks to be fairly easy to make/set up -- some 2x4s, some poles, and canvas. I imagine you could use plywood instead of canvas for something a little sturdier, although this is made to be transported and set up/tear down-able for a weekend event, so it might be good for your needs.

See the fourth one here: http://www.pfi.iastate.edu/images/OutAbout_2_2000.htm

Or a smaller version of the third photo down here, with a fold-down roof: http://www.haywardsicecream-nh.com/gallery.html

Or a converted trailer, designed like those that you see at county fairs that sell food, with a wooden awning that folds down to close it up when not in business.

Actually, many chicken coops look like roadside stands. Maybe you could find something there that was adaptable.

Dragonfly farms,

Is that an honour system set-up you have?

Looks very appealing!

Yes it is on the honor system.

Thanks! It's designed to be pretty flexible. The back and sides can fold up or down depending on how windy it might be. The inside converts for produce (angles up in back) and the entire structure can be lifted off the wheels/frame with my tractor forks should maintenance be required.

I wish I still had the plans to share, but I drew them up on paper and they are lost now..

I went to Google images and typed in farm stand to get ideas.

Hi! I am looking for ways to make my old manure spreader into a rolling roadside stand. My son is starting a vegetable garden business for the summer so trying to save money. Any advice would make a tired mother very happy! Thanks!

I had a great comment from a member about putting food near a manure spreader....not an appetizing combination, but I am still going to keep looking into this. I don't have any other options that already have wheels! Thanks to all!

Well we did make a roadside stand out of our old manure spreader. I really like it now! Not finished putting the finishing touches and will get some bales of straw. We will have bushel baskets with corn and I have some old crates for display. We are going to hang some flower baskets on the shifter handles. This is my son's summer company business.

We tried tents/tables last year, not a good idea the wind really took it's toll. This year we have purchased a small wooden barn bldg that is on skids and portable. Our zoning laws do not permit anything permanent. Hopefully this will pan out for us.

What I am really looking for is display plans. Not bushel baskets, boxes but shelves, bins, etc. for indoor and outdoors.
