Craft fairs and farmers’ markets are wonderful opportunities to display your goods to many different people. If you are just getting involved with these events and want to make some food products to sell, it’s a good idea to be informed of what goes over well.
Technically, the products that sell best depends on the people who will be there. However, there are favorites that sell at the majority of crafts fairs and farmers’ markets. Here is a look at some of the best items to sell at these events so you can make extra money.
Cake pops and marshmallow lollipops go over well with the kids. Parents will buy them for children to snack on then as well as for later on that day. Because of the nature of the products, you can make all sorts of kinds.
For example, cake pops can be made from any type of cake batter, covered in various types of chocolate, frostings, and sprinkles.
Marshmallow lollipops may be created using different flavors of marshmallow, chocolate, and decorations as well. There is virtually no limit on the combinations you can create.
Candy apples may be common at farmers’ markets. You can buy the kits to make them or create all of the candy from scratch. Whatever the case, there are many different types and looks you can make when it comes to candy apples. Above, are the red candy types. Below are the caramel apples that are often a favorite.
These caramel apples are delicious. You get the best of both worlds when you eat them and it doesn’t take a child to want one. Often adults are reminded what being a kid is like and will buy one too.
Chocolate bark is another goodie. It’s fairly simple to make once you have the chocolate ingredients. You pour and swirl whatever chocolate types you choose to use. You can add all sorts of spices, candies, and decorations. When the bark is broken apart, it looks great in little treat bags.
People love homemade jams and jellies. These products do take some time to make but when the bottles are sealed shut, they have a long shelf life. This means you can start making them ahead of time to prepare for the event. Also, there are plenty of kinds you can make.
Before going about making any of these items, you might want to make sure you have the ingredients. If you are a newbie, check out some recipes and leave enough time for a trial and error process. Even seasoned bakers make mistakes with their goods lol. Don’t get discouraged though, the effort is worth it! 🙂
