Events can be very nerve-wracking, and the last thing we want is to forget something crucial. Here’s a checklist of items to bring and what to be prepared for.
- Signage to attach to tent
- Sandbags to hold down tent
- Price list
- Product stands
- Payment reader
- Shopping bags
- Hand sanitizer
- Business cards
- Additional flyers/etc.
- Portable phone charger
And most importantly… your products!
Tips for vendors
If you have lightweight products, consider the possibility of wind affecting your setup.
Majority of farmer’s markets and pop-ups happen outside during summer. Are your products resistant to heat? If not, ensure that your tent provides shade over your products during the whole event. Setting up your tables in the middle of your space, rather than the edges can help with this.
Be prepared with multiple payments options. Having Venmo available, cash, and a card reader is recommended.
If you are using Venmo, display a printout of your QR code for people to scan and easily find you. This ensures that they are transferring money to the correct person.
Bring snacks, and preferably have an extra person who can watch your table for 15 minutes. That way you can shop the market, use the restroom, meet your neighbors, and refuel with a decent meal.
