other vendors dropping out of the market next year
Some good friends are going to stop market gardening next year. Wow I am going to miss them. they helped start the market 12 years ago and now they are just getting older and are going to slow down. I think that only leaves 6 of us originals left who remember what it was like when we started.
On a side note I also sell a flea/antique market on Sundays once a month. I still do well with peaches but now two other vendors come in and that really hurt my apple sales yesterday. I hope October is better their. They dont grow anything and are so cheap. they were selling 1/2 peck of apples for $5.00 and I was at $6.00 so I quickly dropped to $5.00 but it really didnt help. Hell they were selling Bananas and pineapples. It cost $75 to sell there and I sold 8 bu of apples. Not my best day ever.
