"Research is such an important part of starting a new Market Stall at your local markets.

There is nothing worse than starting your market stall without knowing what the competition is.

Some categories are basically overfull with stallholders and the competition is brutal! I wish that I had started off by thoroughly researching my niche and knowing at the bare minimum what the best five competitors were up to.

There is nothing worse than finding out that you are just one of many sellers offering a similar product. Be yourself and most of all be honest about your products, the you will get repeat sales ”

Markets Expansion

Markets Farmers Expansion

Like all markets, growing your production is a steady process. Seasonal Conditions alone each year impacts heavily on both amount produced as well as overall vintage, that affects horticulture, aquaculture, across all farmers markets and local weekend business.

No matter how good your practices and procedures, a poor quality harvest will severely limit your product potential. The cost of expansion is expensive and time consuming, although there are tremendous benefits across both health and local community by being involved.

Local supply chains and delivery routes are established and the tentacles of the local fresh market spreads by face to face cross pollination. Key markets indicators suggest there is a strong growth in the localisation of food and food connections.

How Does a Markets Directory Work?

How Well Does the Markets Directory Work? One thing we all know is that people expect a lot from their paid advertising.  What with social media offering a great way to get your message out there, why would you put your trust in an online directory, and most importantly, what will listing in the Markets Directory actually do for my business?

I know you want exceptional results instantly with little or no effort at incredibly low cost – but that’s not achievable in the real world realistically.  So here’s what we can offer.

I thought the best way to demonstrate this is to list your market stall in real time and let you see for yourself over time how many visitors and how much traffic you get to your site.  But that is too slow, so the next best thing is to reach out and explain that inbound links to your site, from authoritative, on-topic sites (like the Markets Directory) offer impressive value from search engines.

How Online Directories help Search Engines

Online directories work much like the old telephone directory, except the Australian markets Directory is a niche –specific resource – which means it carries serious weight with the search engines. 

When the search engine spider crawls through the directory, it establishes links and paths through the sites listed and with the category specific keywords – so your site is seen as part of the larger whole. 

This works great for getting your site seen in the right neighbourhood – alongside your competitors and fellow market stallholders.
