Nosh Days vs. Bakers’ Shops
Cottage Nosh offers cottage food operators two ways to sell their products: Nosh Days and Bakers’ Shops. You can use one or both of these tools to help your home food business grow and thrive. Both options are available to you at no cost. Let’s take a closer look at each of these tools so you can decide which one(s) are right for you.
Nosh Days are one-day pop-ups (think one-day virtual farmer’s market just for you!) where your customers will place orders in advance and you will deliver them, and/or have your customers pick them up from you. Each Nosh Day can be unique. Every time you set up a Nosh Day you get to decide what listings you will include, whether you will allow pickups or deliveries, and several other details. Want to do Nosh Days 4x per week? No problem. Want to do 2 Nosh Days a month? It’s all up to you. The Nosh Day feature is designed for those bakers that need a lot of flexibility and may not want to commit to being open for pickups and/or deliveries on the same days each week on an ongoing basis.
Bakers’ Shops are more like a traditional storefront. You pick what days you are open for pickups and/or what days you will be making deliveries. When you set up your Baker’s Shop you are committing to be open for pickups and/or deliveries on those days. The Baker’s Shop feature is designed for those bakers that are committed to being open for pickups and/or deliveries on the same day(s) each week on an ongoing basis.
We recommend trying Nosh Days for your first experience selling on the Cottage Nosh platform. By getting started with Nosh Days, you’ll get to know the platform and try everything out without making any ongoing commitments.
