Here's How To... Turn Your Hobby into a Profitable Business

Do you have a hobby that leads to the creation of a useful and possibly salable product? Pottery, perhaps, or pies or pesto?

Ever wondered how much you could profit from selling the products you make?

You can test the market for your goods in an inexpensive yet far-reaching manner by leasing a Booth at Farmer’s Market Online or a basic Listing on the Buy Direct Directory, where more than 3,000 shoppers a day come to look for handmade, home-grown, custom-crafted and farm-raised products available direct from the producer.

Selling or taking orders for your product online has three distinct advantages:

1. Low Overhead. You do not need to invest in a large quantity of your product, as you would in preparation for an on-site market or a wholesaler.
2. High Return. At Farmer’s Market Online, we charge no commissions on sales. Shoppers buy directly from each vendor, who receives 100% of the sale price.
3. Carbon Neutral. Sales can be made directly from your home or office. You do not have to travel unless you want to, and deliveries can be made directly to the buyer’s location.
