I used to sell at the farmers market but no more. Tomatoes and corn the old standbys. Everybody around here grows tomatoes. At the farmers market most folks are not looking for quality they're looking for cheap. Corn is a little different. People want the variety that their parents liked. So a good quality heirloom ear of corn is worthless unless it's on their list. By the time you count cost, transportation, labor, stall rental, etc you ain't going to make a dime in the market around here. There are exceptions. The guy that sells half a pickup of corn everyday parked at a gas station is going to make more money than any of the others. Then there are those who set up a canopy and a little sign that says fresh produce will have cars backed up. They don't say that they buy the produce from a wholesaler and mark it up to retail. So define your market and sell what people are willing to pay. You may find out that it's a loosing proposition. Good luck anyhow.
