It Pays to Get an Early Start

Barry and Jeff were at Findlay Market this morning before the sun rose. They delivered 130 cases of assorted vegetables to their regular vendors. They think the vendors are starting to gain confidence in their reliability and in the quality of the products. In fact, they've got more orders for Saturday and Sunday. This whole delivery-wholesale aspect is a gigantic research project...What sells? What are the different names and grades of the products? How should the items be displayed? What do you need to transport the products and have them arrive in perfect shape? In addition, it's a chance to build relationships with the Findlay Market vendors who have a wealth of experience to share.
