Market is going really well. I am taking about 7-8 dozen eggs each week including some 1/2 dozen cartons. I've tried convincing people that they can purchase a whole dozen because fresh eggs will keep for a long time. Several customers prefer 1/2 cartons and fresh, fresh eggs each week. I can't rally argue with that.
Along with a few cartons of all brown eggs, I've been mixing up colors. Customers get a hoot out of the tri-color dozen mix. One lady said it just makes her happy to open the fridge and see all the colors. =]
Today was our first day selling eggs at one of the local farmers' markets. It is a very small market in a church parking lot. The church started an outreach ministry to bring fresh, local produce to the community-which doesn't have a grocery store of any kind in a 7 mile radius. That may not sound too far to some people, but imagine having no personal transportation and walking or biking 7 miles just to get food. Imagine carrying weekly groceries for a family of 4 on a city bus. The market is filling both a need and a desire in the community.
Our set up wasn't too spectacular, but we did just fine. =]
