Inspired by my sickness today and my fondness for the Farmers Market in Makuu that I like to go to but am not today because I’m too sick, I was thinking it would be cool if there was a way to access some of these products that are sold at the market online.
If I went to the Farmers Market and took pictures of booths along with contact numbers or emails of the vendors and then set up a page on the top of my site that was just devoted to Farmers market items… do you think that would work at all?
Vendors pay $15.00 a week to have their products displayed for about 6-8 hours or so.
If I charged a vendor $5.00 a month to have their goods displayed and a contact to reach them 24 hours a day 7 days a week… I think that would be a good deal.
I need some feedback on this idea before I proceed. Comments?
It wouldn’t just be delegated to Maku’u Farmers Market either… I could go to various farmers markets throughout the entire island.
The only proceeds I would get is that initial $5.00 per month. All other sales would go directly to the vendors and all payments would be done in person at time of the product exchange.
