The farmers market is traditionally one of the easiest ways to sell your product as a small producer. Even the smallest producers of jams can afford to pay a $20 fee to setup a tent and vend at a local event. Prior to the internet, this was one of the only options bootstrapped food producers and crafters had to get their stuff out into the world.

While modern food producers have the option of selling goods online, the wide array of stalls filled with fresh colorful produce, fresh air, and in-person interaction is a timeless option for getting those first few customers. A farmers market brings such happiness and it can be a fantastic business investment since there’s little more you need to offer vendors than a space, electrical hookups, and of course consistent customers.

If you’re organizing a farmers market in your community and wondering what to name it, we’re here to help. Here are more than a hundred super-cute farmers market name ideas that are sure to attract crowd whether it’s a weekend or weekday. Let’s begin.

What sells best at farmers markets?

There are a lot of products being sold at farmers markets that it’s nearly impossible to choose just one item that sells best. Sales depends largely on the type customers, seasonality, and location.

For instance, a customer who wishes to buy organic fruits and vegetables will head directly to the stalls that sell those while customers who are more into cooked food will zero in on the baked goods. But some customers like visiting farmers markets to browse through the products and will just buy based on impulse.

With all the previous disclaimers mentioned earlier, here are some of the top selling farmers market items no matter where you live:

  • Organic fruits
  • Farm fresh vegetables
  • Kettle corn 
  • Crafts
  • Jams and jelly
  • Pumpkins (seasonal)
  • Clothing
  • Flowers
  • Meats
  • Breads and other baked goods
  • Hand-held meals like hot dogs or tacos.

But if there’s one thing farmers markets are known for aside from the fresh produce, it’s just the variety of different products being sold. There are plants, flowers, meats, seafood, and crafts. Neighboring communities are attracted to the fact that there are plenty of items displayed so they come for the variety and different choices unavailable at supermarkets.

How can you stand out at a farmers market?


How to stand out in a busy marketplace.

Farmers markets contain stalls selling all kinds of food and non-food items you can think of. So as a seller, how can your business stand out?

For fresh produce, it would be best to think of an eye-catching display. Put them in those aesthetic small crates or hang them. Don’t just stack your produce without checking each one. Be sure to pick the most good looking fruits and vegetables to make visible. After all, customers see your food before making a purchase.

You should also consider providing great deals or discounts. Customers at a farmers market love a bargain so if they see that your stall has a deal, they’ll be curious. One way to accomplish this is by offering a volume discount. Buy four apples and get the fifth one free is a simple promotion. Remember to make sure such an offer is visible from far away by using chalkboards or big signage to draw folks to your tent.

Cooked food will usually have an advantage. Not only do they capture everyone’s sense of sight but they reel in customers through the sense of smell and allow people to enjoy the product immediately. Offering a free sample is a proven way to taste the product. Don’t be afraid of letting the heavenly smell of your cookies waft around you either. Smells are free and one of the oldest marketing tactics available to vendors.

For non-food items, free samples work well as well. For instance, are you into selling perfume or handmade soaps? Give them a small sample to try out. You can also give freebies if they reach a certain amount as a thank them for the purchase.
