Only Daughter and I did our first Farmers Market in Cowtown, USA this past week.
It was a good beginning -- not a very big crowd,
but we sold the majority of what we had for sale
Fresh Garden Lettuce
Double Chocolate & Lemon Rosemary
Fresh Picked Flowers
Aunt Grace's Laundry Soap
We offered samples of our breads for all who passed by our stand
which really did help us to sell it.
We offered samples of herbal iced tea that I made with:
Alfalfa, Lemongrass, and Mint.
Many were tentative about trying my alfalfa tea, but after I explained
that it was similar to a green tea, they tried it.
All were surprised that they really liked it!
If alfalfa is good for cows and sheep, it's good for humans too!
Check out this link for the Benefits of Alfalfa.
I first read about it in one of my favorite herbal books:
We learned a lot at our first Farmers Market
and we plan to do it again.
Do you go to Farmers Markets? What do you like to buy there?
