New guy here to the forum, happen to be searching and found this.
Well here goes, My wife does 2-3 farmers markets a week selling italian pastrys, cookies, and baked goods. She has been doing this for about 3 yrs and yelds a fair amount of money per 4-5hrs at each location, all with in 15 miles (furthest one away).
This morning at one of her best locations just 2 tents down from her is a couple selling Hot Freshly made donut holes (or balls). There seemed to be a line at times for these 5 to 8 people deep. The whole thing was set up on a 8' table.
I am always looking at diffrent ideas to do things and was wondering who has seen this type of vending at other events, or has any idea how sucsessfull it could be. I know it is what you put into it and results may vary.
When we go to the apple orchard in the fall they make these cake donuts with cinnimon and sugar that are delightful, and there is always a line backed up to get them.
I was looking at a table top donut maker that would run on propane and use an inverter on my van for electric to do this type of thing at farmers markets around and maybe some other events/craft shows.
Any feedback that anyone wants to give (positive-neg) would be welcome.
