First Winter Market, 2012
We had our first winter market last Saturday, the first Saturday of the Month. Even though the outdoor markets last day was 3 days prior.
Here is what our booth looked like prior to start time.
We had 40 feet of table space. We had the largest selection of greens there. We had Jams and Jellies, tomatoes, Cherry tomatoes, carrots, Cilantro, haikuri turnips, Daikon radishes, 4 colors of radishes, 2 types of Kale, Swiss Chard, Salad Mix, Tokoyo Bekana, 5 types of Summer Crisp lettuce, Romaine, Garlic, 2 colors of sweet potatoes, and Bok Choy.
I was disappointed in the sales for the day. I brought home more than I sold. We have been handing out reminder cards at the markets, but I later found out that no one was running ads in the paper or put up signs around town.
For our market on December 1st, I am planning on taking flyers to distribute in local schools (I used to teach at them) and other places. I am thinking about putting a coupon for $1 off with a $10 purchase, good idea?
We will have even more produce for the next winter market. Napa Cabbage, Red Bok Choy, Green Onions, Mustard Greens Arugula, Yellow Carrots, and Tuscano Kale.
How are your winter markets going?
