Portable Farm Stand


Local farmers have to undergo a great deal of effort if they want to have success while competing with big companies that handle tons and tons of produce each day. Any family agro-business knows that every little counts so a portable farm stand will definitely make a difference! This vehicle offers the individual farmer to sell his food around several locations during a week, depending on where people and tourists gather the most. Designed by Eliot Coleman, the wooden wagon is easily towable and can simply be opened into a nice useful stand. It has display shelves to the sides, a fold-down table and a striped canopy, all for usage in selling the best fruit and vegetables available. Check out how awesome one such handmade portable farm stand looks and imagine what an advantage it will create for your business.

    You won’t get the plans for free he’s all about the$

    • John Voice says:

      This is such a selfish and entitled way to say, “He makes money from the plans he slaved over and worked to produce, but I feel entitled to shit for free, therefore I try to make him feel guilty by saying he’s all about the dollars.” Yes, you are “entitled” to your opinion.

    • Bill Me says:

      There are no plans – it was built and later modified without any formal design – basically notes on a napkin, which intelligent people are able to do. Yours is an ignorant comment apparently based on envy, not facts. Eliot Coleman is one of the most generous farmers one might hope to meet, but he does, in fact, get paid for his knowledge. You may have never enjoyed that privilege, but it’s not an uncommon business model among people who actually have valuable ideas.

  13. Paule' Smith says:

    Anyone know where you’d get canopies like these and costs and durability from wind damage when traveling?

    To all those that asked about the plans for this…. This mobile produce stand was constructed by Eliot Coleman at Four Season Farm in Maine. He did not build it to sell plans. He built it to sell vegetables! From the book I can tell you that it was built on a 5’x8′ flat bed trailer. Most of the building materials are recycled from the farm. Old wooden doors were used to close up the sides in the original. Awning is homemade from cloth and attached to metal pipe. Original roof was single layers of pine clapboard for weight reduction. He mentions that the original ideas for it were “scribbled on odd pieces of paper.”

    He talks about how it is built and has pictures in his book “The New Organic Grower”. You may be able to find more about it by searching with that info. Sorry I can’t help more.
