How to label your honey for sale at local farmer's markets

Whether your honey business is a side hustle or your family's main income, the idea of selling your sweet product at a farmer's market may feel daunting at first. If it does, we are here to help you with answers to these common questions.

How do you market yourself? How do you stand out in the crowd? How do you get repeat customers?

First and foremost, you need to think about your honey jar label. You need your logo clearly shown on the front. You also need to have a back label that has all of the important details such as:

  • The amount of honey in the jar
  • The flavor of honey
  • Any other nutritional or consumer information required by law
  • Your website and social media accounts
  • A hashtag that is created just for your company that your customers can tag you with

Another idea is to place a label on top of the jar, for use as a lid label (see below). It's an extra detail that may help your farmer's market booth stand out.
