    So I was at a Farmer's Market today grabbing a bite to eat and I thought of maybe selling some prints of my work at this site. I saw a couple of painters selling their work so I thought, why not? No one else was selling photographs.

    Anyone here with experience with this? Is it worth the effort? :wiggle:

    Definitely. If nothing else, you meet cool people. Great opp. to hand out your card/information, sell a few prints, drum up some business, etc.

    I wonder how much it costs to setup a booth at one?

    Not usually more than $10-20 dollars for about 10x20 ft space around Ohio.

    I've set up at the annual ones before and they can cost more depending on the amount of demand. I've sold a few prints of local historic sites, landscapes, and booked some sessions from them (hehe well my wife does anyway since she's the super sales woman.)

    a guy here in tow was doing it at the weekly flea market, he found that it was basically a wash if not a loss in most cases. You have to charge a lot more than your normal costs to offset the cost of the table/booth you pay for.

    you may find differeing information, but good luck
