Thank you for your interest in the Warragul Farmers Market (WFM). We are a community incorporated association registered with ASIC, Warragul Farmers’ Market Inc.
Warragul Farmers’ Market has three aims:
- provide small local farmers and producers with new selling opportunities
- reconnect the general public with fresh, local food
- complement, not compete with, existing local businesses
We are determined that this will be an authentic farmers’ market, allowing only genuine vendors with no re-sellers (see below for qualifications).
Currently we are seeking accreditation from the Victorian Farmers’ Market Association so we can guarantee the public that we are an authentic farmers market. You will need to hold current Temporary Food Premises Registration (if applicable) from your local Council/Shire or the Department of Primary Industries to participate, and preference will be given to applicants who are accredited by the VFMA. For more information go to www.vicfarmersmarkets.org.au
The market is held in the Civic Park, Warragul, located off Albert Street, approximately 200m from the CBD. Power services are available on site and other amenities such as water are available close by.
WFM wishes to set a high standard of environmental awareness. Stallholders are responsible for their own rubbish, recycle and compostable removal. WFM is moving towards being plastic bag free so stallholders will not be permitted to supply new plastic (or bio-degradable) bags to the public.
Stall rates are currently set at $50.00 (including GST) per market for a standard 3.1×3.1 metre site. Stallholders requiring power will be charged an extra $5.00. We use Trybooking for bookings with payment, an additional fee of $10 is charged for payments on the day. These fees will be reviewed annually on or about the 1st of November to ensure advertising and running costs are adequately provided for.
We look forward to receiving your expression of interest which will be considered by the WFM committee of management for your involvement in the Warragul Farmers Market.
