Become a Stallholder
If you grow, make, rear, catch, bake, brew, pickle, smoke, roast, dry or otherwise produce you own Hawke’s Bay goods we want to hear from you!
The Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Markets are a place where Hawke’s Bay produce growers and Hawke’s Bay makers of artisan products using predominantly Hawke’s Bay grown ingredients can sell their wares directly to the consumer. It is a place primarily for the sale of quality, fresh produce and genuine artisan food products.
Our goal is to provide to the consumer the widest possible range of produce and products from a diverse range of stallholders.
To become a stallholder at either the Hawke’s Bay Farmers Market or Napier Urban Farmers’ Market you have to make a successful application to the Hawke’s Bay Farmers Market Executive Committee by way of an official application form.
How to apply
There are THREE intakes of New Stallholder Applications a year. The cut off dates are 5pm on the 1st September, 1st December and 1st March of every year.
To be eligible the Stallholder applicant must meet the following criteria:
The Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market does not permit the purchasing / re-packaging/ selling on of finished or imported goods.
The HBFM Committee then will select Stallholders and approve products to be sold on such grounds as quantity and type of those goods already on offer; uniqueness of product; compatibility with a desired product mix; tangible local economic development benefit; timing; aesthetics and presentation and on physical site considerations including space available.
