One of our regular people is,by his own account,the owner of a truck farm who derives a substantial part of his income from selling his produce at a farmer's market.DK has informed me that the person has gone from a critical and inquiring poster to an active and very unpleasant troll.Nevertheless,I believe that something has gone wrong at the farmer's market,and the person is frightened by this,and it has affected his mood-as well it might.First-the question---What are the 6 essential things that markets-all markets- do,and please list these things in the order that these things are done.(hint to wick-you already know the answer to this question)^^^^^In the future,I will continue to post under Farmer's Market with other basic-type questions,along with a discussion about how people can improve their local farmer's markets by organizing the vendors for the purpose of creating a profitable,vibrant marketplace that constantly pulls in new customers,instead of a struggling,sad,semi-deserted area of people unable to sell their merchandise because they have no customers.I am hoping other people will post their critiques on the farmer's markets in their areas,and describe them,and discuss the basic economic questions as well.I am doing this in an effort to help a person who comes to this site because they evidently have a problem and they don't know what to do,or even how to talk about it.
