Are you looking for a vibrant inner city market in which to test and refine your offering? Our Young Enterprise scheme may be the opportunity you need to get your idea started.
If you’re interested in becoming a stallholder at the Grey Lynn Farmers Market, the first thing to do is simply come to the market yourself. You’ll get a feel for the market and you may even see a gap are in the current stallholder make-up.
If you are hoping to sell fresh produce from your backyard it is probably best to sell at our community trading table.
If you want to sell processed food (anything that requires food preparation) or produce on a larger scale you will need to become a stallholder.
The Grey Lynn Farmers Market is unique in many ways- we really emphasis local, fresh produce, organic and conventional produce, free range and fair trade where applicable, and the minimum of waste to landfill. Start reading carefully through our stallholder terms and conditions, particularly the market philosophy, as this is indicates the direction and flavour of the market.
Becoming a stallholder is rewarding but very demanding at the same time. It involves early mornings, working strange hours and is suited to those who have the ability to draw in customers and sell their products.
Many things can impact on how successful a market is, from the weather to school holidays and long weekends, to other clashes with festivals and market days. As a stallholder, you’ll need to take the good with the bad, as there will definitely be both.
The Grey Lynn Farmers Market has been an incubator for many small businesses, and we see this as a vital role we can play in our community. If you are serious about starting a business, contact Carol the market manager with your plan or go straight to the stallholder application.
