Last Sunday we had our first market at the Yarra Glen Racecourse. After what started as a very misty day it turned in to glorious sunshine. I imagine a markets busyness is very weather dependent so we we're lucky the sun was out.
We arrived and we're soon helped in to our spot. We definitely felt like the new kids on the block, it seemed like all the other caterers had been doing this for years, they all knew each other well and were chatting away. Other than a great little coffee place in a camper van trailer (with a 6ft owner) we were the only food truck at the market, the others all had stalls they had to set up. Lots of them came up for a friendly peak and a chat so it was nice to start meeting people.
The morning for us was a little slow, we've decided next time to give a breakfast pizza a go to see if that helps. Around lunch orders came in at a lovely steady pace. We did have Sam helping us out in the van again but we think next time it could be managed by just the two of us.
We all had lots of fun and we're very much enjoying our new life style. Fingers crossed for sunshine at all our future markets!
