Farmers Markets in NZ are always looking for new stallholders
. There are only a few simple steps
required to become one:
1) Firstly, make sure that you comply
by checking out the "Can I sell" tab (next tab).
2) Then apply to your local Farmers Market
to become a stallholder. Markets have different joining processes and rules so its a good idea to visit the market and talk to market management before making an application.
3) The market manager will also be able to tell you if you need a license from your local council
to be able to sell at the Farmers Market. Most councils require you to obtain a stallholders license, which is generally renewable annually.
4) You will also need to comply with Food Safety regulations
. These are generally straightforward for fresh produce and more complex for most processed food and things like meat and fish products. Refer to the Food Safety
tab on this page for more information.
When you have been accepted as a stallholder you should receive support from the market organizers and other stallholders
. In addition you can receive a free copy of the FMNZ Stallholders Handbook
which contains a wealth of information to ease your entry into the market.
We hope to welcome you soon as a stallholder.
