If you are considering selling at a market, the fixtures you choose to display your products can have a large impact on the overall customer experience.

Below we talk about things to consider when choosing the right display stands for your market stall.

Stall size and space available

Obviously, the aim of the game is to maximise space wherever possible, but while doing this, you still need to ensure you customers are going to be comfortable shopping within your allocated area. Make sure there is sufficient space between your fixtures, and enough room for a pram if possible – us parents love the markets too!

The types of products you need to display, such as weight and length

Depending on whether you have large items such as clothing, or small items like jewellery will influence the decision on what type of fixtures you choose.

It’s also important to know how much your products weigh, and check the weight capacity of the market stands you are thinking of purchasing.

The amount of time you have to set up and pack up your stall

Some of our fixtures are super easy and fast to put together, whereas other take a little longer. The time you have to set up, then pack up, may influence the fixtures you choose to purchase.

Distance from car to set up 

Have a long walk to your allocated space? You might be better off choosing a lighter fixture for your set up. Some market organises will allow the stall owners to drive their cars in to set up the display, so if this is you, a heavier stand could still be an option.

Other things to consider

Is the fixture easy to transport and will I need a larger vehicle than my standard car to move it?
