The Best Farmers’ Market Tents Around
With shoppers taking turn towards the organic and locally sourced, it is no surprise that farmers’ markets are rising in popularity. Whether you live in the burbs or in a downtown high-rise, in a small town or big city, there’s bound to be a farmers’ market nearby. If you’re a local vendor, there’s never been a better time to get a booth. Aside from your brand and your product or service, there is one essential you absolutely must have at your booth: a farmers’ market tent.
Local outdoor markets run whether it is windy, raining, or the sun is shining hot, and you’re going to need protection from the elements. Furthermore, farmers’ markets are usually short on space, long on vendors, so the organizers are firm on the allotted space to give each vendor. If you’re a seasoned farmer’s market veteran, you know that most plots allotted are the exact dimensions of standard pop-up tents. For farmers’ market environments, a pop-up tent is as much of a must-have item as the products you’re selling. At Extreme Canopy, we are the industry leaders in designing and selling tents for farmers’ markets and beyond. Check out how truly effective and affordable our pop-up and tent options can be, and achieve your dream of becoming a local business owner at your next farmers’ market with our help.

Why You Need a Farmers’ Market Tent
A farmer’s market is a delicate ecosystem of dozens of independent vendors collectively selling things to a crowd of Saturday morning strollers. Much of your customers’ time is spent in the middle of a river of traffic that is frequently hot, crowded, and chaotic. Having shade covering your stall not only protects you, your staff, and the stuff you are selling over the course of the lengthy shift, but it also gives your customers respite from the sun and chaos of the central walkway. If customers are in a cool and covered space, they’re more likely to stay for a few minutes rather than spend just a few seconds perusing your products. Put simply, with a tent, you’re more likely to get the sale.
In addition to building community connections, farmers’ markets are all about selling as many goods as possible. If you’re not keeping your goods shaded, they will break down faster, look unappealing faster, and end up sitting there for the entire day never getting touched. Cover up your stuff simply and easily with a farmers’ market tent. When shopping for your tent, it’s important to keep in mind that not all locally-sourced market locations are built equally. So depending on whether your farmers’ market is being held on a grass, dirt, cobblestone, or concrete, you might need different variety of tent accessories to get your tent secured properly.
Custom Farmers’ Market Tents: The Right Choice for any Farmers’ Market
Farmer’s markets are generally big events with many similar items being sold. Stand out from the crowd of basic white pop-up tents for Farmers’ Market events by going against the grain. If subtly is your method for standing out, then adding a complimentary pop of color to your canopy and/or side walls can be a great option. If shouting your brand’s name to the heavens is more your style, then investing in a custom printed canopy topper, banner, or canopy wall set is the way to go. Here at Extreme Canopy, we are proud to offer America’s largest range of customizable pop-up tents to help businesses like yours stand out from the rest.
Many farmers’ market stalls use some sort of signage in front of their space to funnel the masses toward their point of sale. Besides signs, another great option is to have someone be a sample distributor to get people to taste your wonderful product. But perhaps you don’t have the manpower to have a person out in front of your stall. That’s even more reason to get a sign. A good rule of thumb for signs is to try to have your signage match what you’re selling. Selling French pastries? Have a tasteful banner with fancy handwriting out front. Is your stall a high energy, fun produce place? A feather flag or inflatable structure will most certainly catch customers’ eyes. No matter what your style is, it’s always a good idea to invest in signage that matches your custom farmers’ market tent.
At Extreme Canopy, we have a wide variety of durable sign options — from pop banners to teardrop flags, pull down banners to feather flags — available to order on our site. All of our sign products 100-percent customizable to meet our clients’ needs. Can’t set up freestanding signs in public spaces at your farmers’ market? We’ve got you covered (literally) with table covers and tie-on banners.
