DIY fold-up farmstands allow producers (or picklers, bakers and beyond) a flexible way of bringing food to the people.
They also protect your produce from the sun, and allow for a quick pack up should the rain come down.
Here’s one that Eliot Coleman of Four Season Farm, the author of The New Organic Grower and other seminal books on market gardening, built for use at his local market…
How beautiful is this farmstand? Who would not buy their veggies from it, given the chance?
Leading on from that, we’ve found a couple of other fold-up farmstands to inspire you…
The Folding Farm by Wild Millers, found on their Farmhack page
Another Folding Farm by Sustainable Student Farm, a Pedal Powered Produce project in collaboration with Architecture Small Studio…

Thanks for that inspiring post. We are just about up to the stage where we will be needing one of those. Very inspiring. We have found a nice spot on the roadside where we will give it a go.
Love the Four Season Farm farmstand! It’s like one of those tiny houses. Attractive and practical.
Very inviting-looking farmstands! Wild Millers’ stand looks like an Asian temple!
