How to find markets in your area?

  • Instagram is now a search engine, be sure to search things like #markets(enter your city). If you live in a smaller city, search for the next biggest city from there.

  • Also, replace “market” with things like “farmers market” “pop-up” “craft fair” and “handmade market”

  • Be sure to search on Facebook and Tiktok- market organizers are expanding their reach and media platforms to draw in customers to the event as well

  • If you don’t find ANY at all, think about chatting with your local city council, or a local shopping center about hosting a weekly summer series for makers in the area. We’ll be having Sarah back on to share more ideas on how to organize a small, weekly or seasonal market in your own area.

How much time to allow yourself to set up?

  • This depends on how robust your displays are.

    • The larger the booth the more time you want to plan for

  • Generally speaking plan for one hour per 5 by 5 space.

  • Plan ahead for where you will be loading and unloading.

    • Will you be able to drive up and unload?

    • Or will you need to carry items from where you park?

  

How much inventory do you bring?

  • Bring enough inventory to last through the end of the day.

    • Plan ahead for how many people will show up and what your sales goal for the day are.

    • Consider the size of your display and what it needs to look full but now over crowded.

  • Consider the season and market type:

    • What sells best during this season?

    • Who are the attendees?

    • Is this a holiday market that you can match your booth theme to?
