Their crops in bulk to traders, or you can learn to grow your own and harvest them for sale. Traders usually divide bulk purchases into smaller containers and price the smaller amounts for resale.

Finally,  organic items sell for a higher price. Buy or grow organic produce and resell at local farmers markets where customers go to find fresh, organic and local produce.

People are more likely to stop at a produce booth that is decorative and conveys the care and pride the trader takes in growing, selecting and offering his produce to the public. Use colorful tablecloths, baskets, and signage when creating a booth at local farmers or flea market.

Inventory will vary from week to week depending on the growing season, region and weather. Learning about crops growing in your region will help you discern what type of inventory to carry and produce available at various times of the year.

Some farmers markets request non-organic farmers and growers to identify to customers the pesticides used to grow the produce.

Do not forget about schools, resorts, country clubs and large companies with employee cafeterias when making contacts with area businesses interested in fresh produce.
