( individual berry crisps)
In the end I decided to just go with it....it was just a test run after all ! The weather report was looking a bit damp & windy......no rain.....just a bit of wind and fluctuating cloud sun cloud sun :) There were 10 venders today, 2 others with baking, 1 other with some gluten free brownies....the remainders sold their arts & crafts, produce, jams, teas and homemade soaps.
I didn't go all crazy with signage, displays or packaging this time......simple and too the point and it worked ! I have a bit of time until my next one to pull some of those things together.....my creative juices are already at work. I started off the morning with a basket of veggies, 3 crisps, 2 loaves of bread, 20 cookies, 3 dozen chocolate zucchini muffins and 2 dozen coconut muffins......and returned home with NOTHING :))) Everyone was really cool about it being my first time and excited about what I had to offer....enough to actually spend their hard earned cash :)

So.... my test trip to the market was a complete success !!!! Yay :) I'll be heading back for the last one of the season in a few weeks. Switching up a couple of things and for sure taking more along. I'm even thinking this will be the year that I actually get it together enough to be a vender at our big Christmas Bazaar :)
