Farm Stand Dreaming

Posted by on February 6, 2015

I would love to eventually grow enough fruits and veggies and have enough chickens laying eggs for our homestead to have a cute little farm stand out front to help supply our community with fresh, locally grown, organic produce. The hubby and I have been discussing adding more chickens this spring. I may start of with just eggs, but that doesn’t keep me from drooling over cute little farm stands and farmer’s market booths on Pinterest. So don’t mind me, I’m just farm stand dreaming.

I fell in love with this little “Farm stand of dreams” from WCAI’s The Daily. Of course it’s in Cape Cod, where else would something this charming be?

Old Gates Farmstand - IdlewildAlaska

Farmstand at Old Gates Farm.

I love the functionality of the farm stand at Old Gates Farm. All hinged, so it’s easy to close up for the night, rustic enough to match our Alaskan homestead, and yet still so cute. I also like that I can see just how the overhead door works so I can pattern my own after it fairly easily. I’m thinking I could “go log cabin” with ours with a basic design like this.

How can you not love the “Veggie Wagon” from the Four Season Farm? Not only is it adorable, but it travels! Should we ever get big enough to go “on the road,” I’m going to need one of these!

Cafe Stand by Dara Muscat - IdlewildAlaska

This cafe display from Dara Muscat! I would love to have this set up in a little farm stand!

Due to daramuscat.com being in another language, I have no idea where this little cafe is, but I love their display! It just screams farmer’s market to me. Those wooden boxes are just lovely.

InspiredByThis.com was inspired by farmer’s markets for weddings. My future farm stand has been inspired by her weddings inspired by farmer’s market. There’s something magical about baskets full of bunches of flowers.

    I’ve always wanted to have a little farm stand, I thought one out of the back of an antiquie pick up would be perfect. Love the ones you found!

    I LOVE farm stands!!! I wish we could have one at the end of our driveway….but we live on a dead end road 🙁

      We sorta do too, but there’s quite a few communities building up around us. If we do ever have one, I’m not expecting it to support the homestead completely, but I think it would be fun to try 🙂
