Beginning Farmer/Produce Stand    (Posted Fri, Jul 20 '12 at 10:41 UTC)

Good Afternoon,
Hope you got a little of that rain that passed over head yesterday/night, I know our crops sure did appreciate it!

I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a good outsource/resource for finding a stand at a produce market. Are there any organizations to look for or are there specific licenses to get to be qualified to sell produce in the state of Oregon?

My husband and I are in the midst of care taking for a fantastic organic farm, no one else is working the land. Last month we decided to throw a few things in the ground and it is giving back plentifully! We would love to share and find just enough funding to keep this farm alive!

I appreciate any knowledge you may be able to share; have a fantastic weekend!

Cheers,
Ashley

go to the various farmers markets where you want to sell and ask for the market manager, all the venders will know who this person is. the market manager will be able to answer all these questions and tell if they have room for a new farmer or not.

You will do better at a market that has been around 5+ years than a brand new market that has yet to develop a customer base. Expect to pay a fee/rent for the space. Free markets are generally low customer markets (no budget for advertising) and generate few sales for you.
