Another PC consultant has asked me to help her with a local craft fair, she is going to need bathroom breaks so wants help and will split the leads. She is also bringing in a recruit of hers. She is going to provide the PC products for display, the table, etc. She said all I have to do is be there with some catalogs. I asked her what kind of food she is going to prepare for display and she said she just puts hershey kisses in the SA in the three tiered stand. I think it would do better to have something homemade, the brownies, puffs or some cookies.

So got me to wondering, what do you ladies and gentleman do for local craft fairs, bought candy or homemade goodies?

for me it depends on the season. we had a fair the day after christmas and that whole weekend, so TONS of people showed up. i had candy in the SA pieces because i knew i would runout of samples. if its a big fair i would try that. if its a smaller one then samples would be good. i think the puffs or the 3 step fudge would do good, cookies, small things that could go in cupcake holders or small cups. HTH!!

Some fairs don't allow food or the require a special permit which you have to pay extra for. i've come across this mostly for county fairs that are pretty big, so smaller booth opportunities may not care. You should check with the coordinator of the event just to be sure.

I'm doing a community fair on Saturday and they don't allow food without a permit. I have no desire to go THAT route, so it's just kisses in the SA 3 tier for me!

I agree. Most festival and fairs require a food permit because most states/counties have health code regulations regarding where and how the food was prepared.

I have done granny smith apples on the APCS - kids love this! Also, bread slices for cut and seal demo, only - not eating.

It's best however to stick with candy or pretzels and the like in SA.

how about doing the potato demo? i did that one month...had a handful of potatos and if someone wanted to know how to use a tool (the crinkle cutter was the most often asked about) i just grabbed a potato and showed them. the a/p/c/s is another good option!!
