Farmers Market Season 2011

One of the best ways for me to introduce my product to the public is through Farmers Markets!   This face to face opportunity allows me a moment to explain what’s special about my soaps (that they are formulated with goats milk, yogurt, water or beer; that they are made with moisturizing oils such as olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, castor oil, shea butter, etc.; that they are cured for at least 4 weeks before being sold, etc.) and the customer can smell the lovely fragrances (over 20 choices) and decide which one they can’t live another day without!!

This year I will be in the Salt Lake Farmers Market on 7/23, 7/30, 8/20, 8/27, 9/17, 9/24, 10/15 and 10/22; and at the Sugar House Farmers Market on 7/22, 7/29, 8/19, 8/26, 9/16, 9/30, 10/7 and 10/14.

I may also pop in to a couple other markets as time and energy (and soap inventory) allows.

I personally love the Farmers Markets.

1.  People are happy to support local businesses — and even if they aren’t buying they are very friendly.

2.  I get immediate feedback from customers about new fragrances/products.

3.  I get suggestions for new products (last week someone asked for soap for dogs and today someone suggested I make chocolate soap and coconut lotion).

4. I get to meet/see some very interesting people (people watching is great fun)!  (Last week I recognized a friend from Middle School/High School!)

5.  I make sure to support other businesses as well (we brought home Tree Hugger Foods Granola and Crumb Brothers Bread, and my husband bought a “Fresh Lime” and some pulled pork for lunch).

If there is a Farmers Market near you I encourage you to buy local and have a wonderful sensory adventure besides!
