|We love Farmer's Markets
One of the things we've done since 2008, has been attend local Farmer's markets. The first one was very informal, had anywhere from 10-20 vendors and charged "backyard" low prices.
Then, Cedar City (through the Utah State Extension Service - Iron County), started a mid-week late afternoon Farmer's Market in downtown Cedar City. That was in 2011. We had a great time there, too. In 2012, we moved to a more visible location. Traffic was down a little, but we finished strong.
This past summer, we also began to support a Saturday Farmer's Market at the local IFA store (the largest in the whole co-op). We've since become major sponsors of that market.
Even in the dead of winter when all we have to sell are our eggs, we go to the Year Round Farmer's Market at the IFA store, just to talk with the customers, and share our farm story.
There's nothing in the world like having the laptop showing pictures of our farm (from the beginning), to being able to present new programs for the summer season, to polling the customers about new ideas, to sampling potential value-added products.
It's really great for the kids, too, as we have time to share with them and answer their questions.
Try it! You'll love it!
