Making and selling your unique food products at the farmers market takes a lot of hard work and dedication. And while farmers markets may or may not require products to have FDA-compliant nutrition facts panels, it’s a great idea to have one on your product anyway. Not only will it appear professional to your customers, it will provide them with the detailed nutrition information they desire. Plus, your product will be completely ready to sell at retail locations if it gets scouted at the market.
While creating a farmers market food label for your product may seem overwhelming, especially if you make and sell multiple products, the process can actually be quite simple. With a FDA-compliant online nutritional analysis software and label generator, you can create a professional nutrition label—complete with a nutrition facts panel, an ingredient list, and allergen statements—quickly and affordably.
Using an online nutritional analysis software, you can create FDA-approved nutrition facts labels for your farmers market products—from homemade jams to sausages to baked goods—in just a few minutes. With LabelCalc’s user-friendly software, here’s all you need to do:
Having face-to-face interactions with your customers on a regular basis means you are probably always coming up with new flavor combinations and tweaking your products in response to their desires. That’s why we’ve included a duplicate function that allows you to make a copy of an original recipe (i.e. strawberry rhubarb pie) and modify it (i.e. refined sugar-free strawberry rhubarb pie) without re-entering the entire recipe.
Try combining new seasonal flavors, creating low-calorie or low-fat versions of your products, or swapping out regular flour for a gluten-free blend. This tool is especially handy for creating a line of similar products with slight variations that will have different nutrition facts panels, ingredient lists, and allergen statements, like a line of homemade pies.
