Roadside just doesent have enough customers. Try and get into small fairs and other local events, this will give you confidence in your product and let you monkey around with pricing and profit margins. For my business I need at least 100 sales to make it worth my time and effort. I just started last year and did 3 farmers markets a week. Weather is by far the biggest factor in sales. Even with 3 small markets I probably averaged around $500.00 profit a week. This year more fairs and big events will hopefully increase profits.
