The Marketing Homestead Products series offers market gardeners and homesteaders tailored advice for selling their goods. Consider the benefits and drawbacks of joining up with a CSA, renting a farmer’s market stall, and the various forms of advertising available to your farm-based business.

If you operate a small farm or homestead, chances are you've considered joining a farmer's market. These markets are steadily increasing in popularity, with 8,600 of them in the United States, and new ones are popping up all the time. 

While they can be incredibly lucrative, they require a regular time commitment and face-to-face engagement with your customers. When choosing which one you'd like to be a vendor at, make sure your business goals align with what the market can offer. 

To get started, you'll need to rent a stall or booth. The costs are often reasonable and vary based on the location. Some markets rent out stalls once per season and require full attendance with little flexibility. Others may be available for lease each week or month. Whatever the situation, research your local area to find out which opportunity is best for your situation.
