Thank you for your interest in becoming a stallholder at New Brighton Farmers Market. Please follow the steps below:
Step one – Self Assessment
Please find attached the Self Assessment Test. This will enable you evaluate whether your business meets the requirements of an authentic farmers market. All new stallholder applications must obtain a minimum of a 100 points to go to step two.
In order to protect the authenticity of our farmers markets it’s important that the stallholders either; grow their own produce locally or source their ingredients from a local farmer. This works on a percentage scale as we appreciate a few ingredients may need to be sourced outside our preferred criteria. This is not a resellers market and therefore at all time our local farmers need to benefit from produce sold at our markets. Supporting our local farmers means we protect local food security as well as supporting the local economy and community.
Step two – Application Form
Please fill out the stallholders application form and send it to us for assessment by the NBFM Committee. Please include images to assist in our assessment. This process can take anything from 4-12 weeks.
Our committee consists or 8 people with an equal split of stallholders and consumer members, all of who are eligible for one vote. This committee structure gives us a balanced view on consumer demands, whilst being mindful of our existing stallholders being able to earn a reasonable living.
Step three – Waiting List
Currently the New Brighton Farmers Market is at capacity with a waiting list in place for any new stallholders. The wait list is assessed against category and product mix when a position becomes available.
Market Management is unable to advise when an opportunity may become available at the market as it depends on stallholders turnaround, but we are always keen to hear from new growers and artisan food producers.
