IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Green PMF Farmers’ & Community Market will allow you to book providing you meet our criteria (see our Market Manifesto).

However, the market reserves the right to refuse or cancel bookings with you at any time for whatever reasons and without explanation.

It will be necessary for you to complete the Stallholder Registration Form and to confirm that you have received and read the Market Trading Policy which will be sent to you with the Registration Form.

When and where does the market happen?

Everyday, from 08:00 – 20:00 at our Prime Location.

What can I sell?

The aim of the Market is to provide locally produced, good quality seasonal products at reasonable prices.

Production methods should have minimal adverse environmental impact and conform to recognized standards.

The Market’s management monitor the quality of produce offered for sale by all stallholders.

The Market supports the principles of organic production and sustainable farming.

The market has a preference for organic produce but will accept non-organic produce.

Where there are similar products, preference will normally be given to a producer using organic methods

Secondary producers should use locally grown ingredients where possible.

Stallholders are encouraged to inform customers when products are wholly or principally made from local ingredients.

What can’t I sell?

No genetically modified produce or goods containing genetically modified ingredients may be sold.

Produce sold at the Market must normally be produced within a radius of 50 miles.

The Market’s management may at its own discretion make exceptions if produce is not available from local producers.

In such cases the county or country of origin must be clearly displayed.

No bought-in produce may be resold without further processing and without prior arrangement with the management.

What if I want to sell something similar to other stall holders?

Green PMF Farmers’ and Community Market: Information for stall holders Market aims to achieve a balance of a wide range of stalls.

When the possibility of different stalls selling the same or similar produce arises, the management will consult with existing stallholders offering such produce before deciding whether to accept a new applicant.

What about insurance / health and safety?

All stallholders must comply with current Trading Standards and Environmental Health requirements.

If you’re serving food you must get/have a relevant food safety qualification

– you can do one online here: http://www.foodcertificate.co.uk/WeThinkCatering.aspx

All stallholders (including charity or information stalls) must have public liability insurance and product liability insurance if selling anything. Proof of cover must be presented to the Market management prior to, or at, the first market the stallholder attends.
