A quick update as we head into Opening Weekend… our season has changed over the years, and what used to be the start of our year is still a meaningful milestone – but a lot of effort already in the history books for 2023:
- 829 vendor booths have reported combined sales of $377,011 thus far.
- the average vendor sales over the preseason is $454/vendor day
When we first took management of the Market, we barely broke $1m the first year – now, we are not far off pace to do that with our smaller markets.
Our flagship market has done more in a single weekend, which is incredible, but it usually takes a few weeks before sufficient fresh produce is available to really post those numbers. It will be interesting to see how this weekend goes – I’m feeling great about everything, the vendor lineup is exceptional this year.
Rest up, a very busy weekend is just hours away!
