Do you want to sell with us?
If you grow it or make it using local ingredients we may have a place for you.
We value conventional and organic production methods. Your sales staff must be involved in the business and be able to talk with knowledge about the products they are selling.
We can offer marketing advice and suggestions.
If you have sold at farmers markets before and it didn't work out, give our markets a try, or come and visit our markets to see how we do things differently.
We are keen to encourage participation at our markets by producers from all parts of the community. If you think you fit the bill, please get in touch and let’s talk about it.
We visit all farms and businesses before they sell at our markets. We expect to see receipts for local ingredients, seed and plant receipts and movement books for livestock. See our rules to check that you meet our standards.
What will increase the chance of me getting a space?
Farmers / Growers: We look for heritage varieties and traditional breeds. Good stall presentation is key to good sales and we expect all stalls to look the part. Having more than one product will help your sales and make your stall more viable.
Cooks: We require you to use at least 50% seasonal and local ingredients in each product or dish. If you use meat and poultry it must be high welfare.
Bakers aren’t required to use a majority of local ingredients but we do ask that you use as many locally sourced and seasonal ingredients as you can and to always use natural fats and free range eggs.
Please e-mail us if you are interested in selling with us.
