Default products on market night

What would you want to see sold on market nights? Are "The Villages" the only people who can sell food and drink products during these nights? Thanks for the ideas.

I'd like to see a few crafty items, wreaths, centerpieces, etc.
I'd prefer fresh.

They really aren't 'market nights', but once a week vendor nights, with booths selling non-food stuff, like hats, jewelry, lamp post signs, sport accessories, small home decor, etc.
There is however, one fellow who sells hot dogs from a steam wagon, but I'm not sure if he is limited to only vendor nights or not.

We have a fresh market a few days a week (?) @ The Villages Brownwood Square, selling produce, foodstuffs, plants, etc. and a food vendor who will eventually have a restaurant there.... it is under construction.

There are also a number of fresh farmer's type markets nearby The Villages on weekends. All are good quality and all are busy.

One does not need to be a resident to rent a booth in The Villages.

We have bought signs,children's books, caps, sweatshirts. women's tops, cell phone holders, purses, cheap golf balls etc. from Market night.

So what you have, has been good to us. Like the fresh flower idea. Its always about price. The lower the price, the more you will sell.

They "ARE" actually called Market Nights. And they are held "TWICE" a week at Town Square (Mon.&Wed.) and "TWICE" a week at Market Square (Tues.&Thurs.)

Paddock Square has a Farmers Market "ONE" day a week(Sat.)

The hot dogs at Sumter Landing used to be from a cart from the movie theatre, owned by The Villages.

Contact TV Entertainment Dept. 352-750-5411. Tammy Ford used to be the POC for vendor nights, not sure if she is still there.
