This is for all specialty makers that bring a product that has been processed (i.e not raw produce) including farm based producers who sell products made from their own raw ingredients. Please note: specialty makers are eligible for our markets, on the basis that your product/s highlight Victorian ingredients and you source as much as possible direct from the grower/producer. Your product needs to be handmade by you/your business and any employee who attends the market must be directly involved in the production of the goods you sell.

Statement
If accepted, I will support Melbourne Farmers’ Market and will comply with the conditions of the market management and VFMA accreditation. A trial period of 3 months is understood and MFM reserves the right to not extend this agreement if I do not meet the standard or conduct expected. The information I have provided is current and I will advise management of any changes to my business, current market commitments or if I want to apply to add to my list of produce/product. Your acceptance is on our consideration of existing stallholders and seasonality. We make every effort to get the market balance right, but if this is imbalanced by adding new stallholders, we operate on a last on - first off basis.
