How to Use a Storage Unit for Farmer’s Market Supplies

Whether you’re thinking about selling products at a farmer’s market or are struggling to sustain your business because it’s starting to take over your personal space, utilizing a storage unit can be a huge asset. Being a vendor at a farmer’s market takes a lot of commitment, and it can also consume space in your life, but it doesn’t have to. Here are three tips from the storage experts at Secure Self Storage on how a storage unit can help you with your farmer’s market supplies, so you won’t worry about space and can continue to exercise your love of producing authentic products.  

  1. Perfect for equipment storage. Selling products at a farmer’s market can take up a lot of space in your life time-wise and well, space wise. For example, where are you going to keep the tables, cases, crates or chairs you use to display your items? If you live in an apartment or don’t have an attic, garage or basement, finding space for all of these items can be difficult. Storing these items in a unit during the days or months that you aren’t using will ensure that they stay in good condition without clogging up your living space.
  2. The ideal place for extra inventory. When looking for a storage facility, take into consideration how far it is from the market you sell at. Choosing a facility that’s in close proximity enables you to keep extra products in your unit, so when supplies get low, you can easily grab them and restock your table. After all, having enough products to display will keep customers—and your wallet—happy.
  3. Utilize a truck? Store it. Depending on what products you sell, you may be required to invest in a truck for picking up and delivering items. However, you may not have the additional driveway space or the enough time to deal with the hassles of alternate side of the street parking. By storing your vehicle, you can rest assured knowing that it’s safe and secure, out of your way and off of your mind until the next time you need it.
