hot pepper sales dilemma
I grow a lot of unusual hot peppers and take them to market in a red basket marked "basket of pain". I get all the crazy pepper people showing up at my booth and since I"m crazy too, I like to encourage this.
However, I have a problem. a very nice Thai couple that owns a Thai restaurant keeps showing up at the market around 10 am, we run till 12, and wanting to buy all my hot peppers. I'm usually very busy then, and I do actually like these people so I shoot them a price and they buy them all. Then the rest of the market, I mentally kick myself for selling them cheaper, and then when my other pepper people show up, I don't have any.
I've been thinking of telling them that I will not sell to them until the market is over, and then making them a good deal on what's left. And if they do want them during market, it would be full price, like anyone else. I really don't want to make them mad though, because I do think having them in the wings to play "clean up" after maarket would be ideal.
What do you all think would be the best way to handle this?
