Compare market fees
There seems to be a wide range of market fees in my local markets. Just wondering what the fee structure looks like at different markets across the U.S. Also, what percentage of your profit do you figure this fee takes of your total sales?
One local market charges a $50 application fee and $25 per market day. Another charges a $45 yearly stall fee plus 6% of sales. Stall sizes are 10 x 10 and nothing is provided (like tables, canopies, etc.).
Since its my first year I don't know if these fees will seem large or insignificant compared to my sales. I'd like to do $250 a market day...but that sure is a lot of product!
