... as holding a collection of edible plants such as wheat, corn etc.
She embodies that phrase, "You reap what you sow" or "You create that which you focus on".
The new age version of the same thing and...
This is her mantra.
Demeter Goddess of harvest reminds us of the "seasons" of life. There are times of joy and times of sorrow flowing in a cycle. This reminds us of the fluidity of life.
She represents the archetype of the mother. If you feel drawn to Demeter you may be a nurturer, caring for all whom are in need.
... in bringing your harvest to fruition. As you work on creating your reality, call in Demeter to energize your "harvest", whatever that may be.
It does not matter what you are harvesting. It could be a new way of thinking, a new job... it can be anything!
She also assists in releasing old unwanted emotional baggage (read on for more on that).
The Goddesses love to be honored and Demeter, Goddess of Harvest, is no different.

Just a simple space is all that you need.
The top of a dresser or book shelf would suffice.
Place items that have meaning and energy for you, ie crystals, pictures, feathers, any sacred object that you have in your possession.
... may be a food source, written source (like a poem) or something you find like a feather or a rock etc...
For Demeter, since she is the Goddess of Harvest, I would offer her a food or drink, something that is harvested and consumable, mainly because that makes sense to me and it feels right.
Also it is good to note that;
harnessing the energy of the rare harvest moon will amp up what you are creating.
Use that to your advantage and perform your offering during a harvest moon!
