I will be selling cupcakes at a local farmers' market this year. I was looking on the internet for a display case but they are so expensive. Does anyone have any suggestions?

AI have all mine pre boxed, and use elevated small cloche stands to display one of each flavor. Like this one,

I do know that one of our local restaurant supply places sells used ones sometimes, at a pretty decent discount, you could check with places like that.

I am in the same situation as you,Scrumptious16, trying a Farmer's Market this year. 


I am going to pre-pack my cupcakes in 4 holed clamshells, but also plan on putting individuals for sale on a stand, under a dome. I found the stand and dome (sold separately) at  They haven't arrived yet, so I can't comment further on them, but they did get good reviews and I have seen cuppies displayed this way.  


Good luck!

AI'd been to several farmers market in several continents and this is what I see , all cupcakes were displayed in a closed wrapped around glass case. They look scrumptious and mouth watering display, there's a lot of people milling around, and you want to protect your product. I will not buy cupcakes that are not protected well.

Did you try making a foam display?

Have you considered using a cake dummy display and using it for cupcakes? You can have a cylinder center and have the foam disks spread out so you have room to put your cupcakes on. Just a thought! It is cheap, reusable and lightweight.
