Food markets are a good platform for showcasing your food and your catering skills, making sure you have a captive audience who are looking to buy your food. If you are new to the industry, a market can help you to find new customers and spread the word about your catering business.
If you live in an area that has a market, see whether you can secure a stall. You will often have to pay for the stall and provide your own equipment, though some things like tables and cookers may be there already.
For chefs and caterers who specialising in a certain type of cuisine, this is a great opportunity. You can make a name for yourself cooking the kinds of food you enjoy the most, showing people what you are capable of. Offer a few varieties, but not too many – at markets, people expect the food to be good, accessible, quick and affordable.
