Thank you for your interest in becoming a stallholder at New Brighton Farmers Market. Please follow the steps below:
1. Step One: Self Assessment
Please see the Self Assessment Test Form. This will enable you to evaluate whether your business meets the requirements of an authentic farmers market. All new stallholder applications must obtain a minimum of a 100 points to go to step two.
- In order to protect the authenticity of our farmers markets it’s important that the stallholders either; grow their own produce locally or source their ingredients from a local farmer.
- This works on a percentage scale as we appreciate a few ingredients may need to be sourced outside our preferred criteria.
- This is not a resellers market and therefore at all times our local farmers need to benefit from produce sold at our markets.
- Supporting our local farmers means we protect local food security as well as supporting the local economy and community.

3. Step Three: Application Form
Please fill out the stallholders application form and submit it to us for assessment by the NBFM Committee. Please email images to assist in our assessment. This process can take anything from 4-12 weeks.
ONLY If you have successfully obtained 100 points please progress to the next stage:
- Producer/Value Adder (non grower) Complete this form if you’re a Producer/Value Adder (non grower) here
- Grower/Producer Complete this form if you’re a GROWER here
Our committee consists of 8 people with an equal split of stallholders and consumer members, all of whom are eligible for one vote. This committee structure gives us a balanced view on consumer demands, whilst being mindful of our existing stallholders being able to earn a reasonable living.
4. Step Four: Waiting List
Currently the New Brighton Farmers Market is at capacity with a waiting list in place for any new stallholders. The wait list is assessed against category and product mix when a position becomes available.
Market Management is unable to advise when an opportunity may become available at the market as it depends on stallholders turnaround, but we are always keen to hear from new growers and artisan food producers
