Farmer’s markets create an amazing opportunity to interact with customers, increase brand awareness, make sales, and be part of a fun, close-knit community. To truly make the most of taking part in famer’s markets, it’s not just a matter of turning up with your produce and hoping for the best.
Once you have assessed the markets available to you and chosen the ones that best fit your produce and aesthetic, forward thinking that incorporate an array of options to suit your business is required. A primary factor is how you are going to attract potential customers’ attention and make them want to visit your stall.
At BestFlag, we understand what can help you stand out from the other great businesses at a farmer’s market. High on the list is awesome signage. Without this, market goers will most likely walk on by, making a beeline for those stalls that clearly tell them what is on offer and why they should choose them. We are here to help you turn wanderers into customers.
Use Signs People Can’t Ignore
Market goers must know what you are selling to know why they should walk up your stall. Distinct, easy to understand signs, such as our feather flags and banners, are a must. You need to demonstrate to potential customers why your business is unique.
Clearly show off your niche products. Make it clear that your homemade dog treats can make Fido want to jump hoops or that your lettuce was picked only hours ago and can be on their dinner table tonight. It’s all about grabbing someone’s attention and reeling them in so you can wow them with what you are selling.
Signs, flags, banners, and labels can share so many important details regarding your stall, farm, employees, and products. This can include the more obvious things, like your business name, item prices, and what you sell, but it can also include exciting and innovative information. This might be recipes, your back story, or your mission. Making yourself relatable and interesting increases the chance that people will want to engage with you.
Photos Of Your Farm
People usually come to a farmer’s market because they want fresh produce and to support local businesses. So, show them where your products are coming from. Let them see your beautiful fields, the way your animals are treated, or the happy team that work your farm. This can make them excited to buy from you because they know your story and the quality of what they will consume.
Frequently Asked Questions Signs
Having FAQ signs is a great idea. These can allow customers to have a smooth and efficient visit to your stall, and reduce the time you spend answering the same questions over and over, freeing you up to get to sales and restocking.
Take Advantage Of The Potential Of Your Space
If you use a tent to house your stall or cloths on your tables, don’t leave them blank! These hold great potential for your business name, photos, or the descriptions and prices of the produce you sell. There are amazing benefits of free-standing banners and flags, and when used in combination with other elements of your stall, the outcomes can be fantastic.

There are so many elements to consider when you take produce from your farm to a farmer’s market.

Having an organised and consistent system in place that you and your employees understand is also highly beneficial for smooth functioning.
