You want to sell your produce directly? Become a stallholder at the Waikato Farmers' Markets!
Being a stallholder at the Waikato Farmers' Markets comes with great benefits:
We provide the meeting point between producers and customers and help you sell directly for a relatively small fee (annual membership and weekly stall fee)
Enjoy the market community and your customers' appreciation (who will quickly become regulars), exchange ideas and build collaborations with like-minded growers and entrepreneurs
Use the market as a platform for reaching ambitious business goals, if that is your dream.
We have a number of stallholders who started with a tiny production and became large businesses in a short period of time, others enjoy staying small and manageable, focusing on the weekend sales of their part-time businesses.
Does this sound like something you want to get involved in? We hope so!
We are always looking for dedicated local growers (especially of fruit and vegetables) and entrepreneurs and would love to hear from you. There may not always be the space or opportunity for your product to be in the market, but we'd love to chat.
We are not currently accepting applications for sweet items (cakes, pastry, macarons, donuts, cookies etc) or ready to eat food stalls.
We do have simple rules that make sense considering our status as a farmers' market:
