The spots in our markets are small, only 10’ – 12’ wide so we need to make every inch count. Our market niche is nice produce at a fair price. We are organic and charge more than most of the conventional growers, but less than the artisanal producers. We sell mainly farmers' market staples: tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, sweet corn, melons, potatoes, squash, a few herbs, some eggs and raspberries. With the exception of the raspberries we have a fair amount of competition from the other vendors. Since we try not to compete on price, we need to ensure that our stand is welcoming and encourages people to buy.
