Selling extra produce from our home garden
Each year we have a fairly big garden and this year it was quite prolific. I saw an interview in the local paper regarding a new farmers market in our town.
In it the person said they welcome all kinds of local producers, from the large growers to the backyard gardener with a little extra produce. I called and they were excited to have me. I brought in my extra and it all sold out. I went every Saturday this summer and sold my extra produce.
I was invited by another market for their weekly distribution and I sold there too. I really enjoyed myself and made a lot of new friends.
People keep coming back to buy my produce and told their friends too. I consider this to be a successful venture and we are planning an actual market garden for next year.
I have been reading everything I can and in November I will buckle down and get to planning the next garden.
