If you’re looking for the perfect sale at the farmers market, it’s not enough to just know how to make the most money on the street.
In a new book, Irish author Tom Maclean reveals how he makes money in a marketplace in the country’s capital, Dublin.
His success is partly down to his ability to understand people’s emotions and how they react to events.
In this exclusive interview with The Irish Express, Maclean discusses how he sold a stall in the Dublin market, the best way to make a profit in a market and how he managed to keep his own family afloat.
The interview was conducted on the eve of the Dublin Farmers Market on Saturday, March 26.
