It’s important to understand your customers and why they like to come shop at farmers’ markets so you can better target these needs.
Here are 8 reasons why people like to shop at farmer’s markets:
Your booth gives the first impression of your business and tells visually what your brand represents. By curating an eco-friendly booth using sustainable materials you are showing that your business cares about the environment.
Use sustainable woods and fabrics, add plants as decoration, and repurpose materials such as wooden crates to display your products.
Add signage that shows the name of your company but also shares more information about your story: where you are from, what you offer as well as what is the mission of your company and what you support. Too often there isn’t a lot of information available which is too bad because you are missing a chance on connecting with your customers and share your story. This is your opportunity to say something about your company that will set you apart from other booths.
