Here’s a photo of the All Star Organics booth that I snapped (I asked first!) at the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market in San Francisco a few years ago when I got that yummy spearmint sugar.
This presentation totally inspires me. I have some things to learn from this display to help me with my own farmer’s market display. The simple, rustic milled boards still with their waney edge. The stylish black and white labels on jars and bottles, all the same size, stacked and grouped neatly, no bows, no ribbons…..no muss, no fuss….simply beautiful!
It always interests me to notice how a display (and packaging) done thoughtfully and carefully with attention to detail communicates respect and kindness to the market-goers and customers and to ourselves, (the growers and makers) too.
I like to think it will help make our experience of the world at least a wee bit more pleasant.
And check out that gorgeous still in the background there! Whoa! There’s another photo of it here ….I also brought home a hydrosol from that trip: douglas fir It was glorious.
Since I know of some aspiring small farm operators who follow along here, I thought I’d share this good article that features Janet Brown of All Star Organics, her experiences and ideas on starting and successfully operating a small specialty farm. If you’re working on doing so, you might like this read. I really relate to the ideas at the end of the article.
