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. =]
