New Farm Market Stand
« on: May 27, 2017, 05:21:41 pm »
I just signed a one year contract at the Wolfville Farmers Market. I ended up with a much better spot, on the outside of the oval, against a wall, and it's bigger as well. Because I am permanent I no longer have to set up and tear down after every market, a royal pain. All I had to do was build a cabinet that is on castors so that when the market building is used for weddings and dances and such, my cabinet can be rolled to an area designed for them by staff.
I built the whole thing for well under $100, using a bunch of scrap wood I had. I will leave the top and the wood au natural, we use a table cloth on top anyways. I find "rustic" is what fits in at the market, not too polished (good thing).  :D



I have a sheet of 1/4" plywood on the back side till I get some molding and make a couple of locking doors. There is plenty of space inside to store stuff, so we will only have to bring what we sold the previous week. A lot less work.



I also have a 6' X 2' banner that I will hang on the wall behind us.

Very nice, just need to paint a bee or two on it. When you're a crafter, you always have to add more LOL

Get that thing fixed with shelves and lockable doors on back and all you have to wheel in is the goods for sale :yes:

Great plan Perry!  Is this market the one you have used in the past?

Hey Lee:

Yes it is. I was just tired of having to lug everything there and back each week, this will make it all so much easier. I will only have to bring what I sold the previous week to replenish.
Some bee pics stuck on it sounds like a good touch. :yes:

Looks nice, Perry, and sounds like it'll save you a ton of work!  Double plus good!

Looks really good! Permanent stand at the market today, Brandt's Bees Store next?

It's amazing how two good hands can turn scrap wood into a work of art.   :goodjob:
Here's best wishes for a lot of sales throughout the coming year. 
May you  be "troubled" only by the need to bring a lot of refills every market day.   8)
