      Help deciding what to sell on my market stall

      Hi, everyone. I am new here and reading the advice you guys offer I think I have come to the right place.

      I want to set up a stall in the market but, even though I have done research etc, I am stuck for ideas. I tried selling clothes but was no good as the town I live in is full of old people.

      In this market, they have everything, cakes, books, dvds, knitting, jewelry, you name it so I do not know what to sell. Any ideas, please?

      Hi Sandrita,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      You have already correctly identified your market. While it is unlikely that doing a survey will reveal what the seniors will buy that they don't already own, you can use online research to find out what older people are buying in your country or area. Start from https://www.wholesaleforum.com/discu...arch-tools-67/ for a few of the best online market research tools.

      There are a lot of opportunities to serve senior buyers with innovative products that can make their lives that little bit easier, without being too complicated. It is also a growing market due to the baby boom generation. Read up online about how to research this market and don't be afraid to test the waters.

      Have you considered plants and herbs, I know there's normally a shop or stall like that in most markets which would appeal to the older generation. If you have a younger market or even active older customers then cycle spares could possibly an avenue that might work.

      I can help with the supply of cycle accessories if you wanted to go that route :-)
