What is the correct way to markup small businesses like farm stalls?

What would be used for this? The Organization from Schema.org? LocalBusiness? Anything else more specific?

A farm stall is not in a mall or in a shopping centre. They are normally outside of a town next to the road. They have all kinds of goodies that you can buy, not always farm-related. Some farm stalls have a section of the shop dedicated where you can eat something small and drink coffee.

How would you treat these small little shops? Like a normal organization? There can be many farm stalls in a country, province and town. Not sure if local business is to be used?

LocalBusiness seems most appropriate here to me. The size of the organisation does not change the schema type, and you can specify the numberOfEmployees to show that it is a small organisation.

  • Remember I am not marketing 1 farm stall, there are going to be plenty. So in the detail page of each farm stall I will list it as a local business? Mar 2, 2016 at 9:26
