Covid Support for Stallholders
The Association has drawn up both procedures which we think you may find useful and a list of supplies which you may wish to use.

We believe it is imperative for all of us to ensure the safety of our Customers and other Producers so we have decided to offset the cost of common signs. In addition, with many Local Authorities discouraging the use of cash and preferring contactless payments we feel we should share these extra costs with our members and so we are offering to subsidise the cost of card readers.

The Re-opening Plan:-

Local Authorities/ Parish Councils may request to see a Plan before allowing markets to be re-opened which take into account :-
  • Social Distancing. This will have a major impact on the layout of the market especially regarding the number of customers that can enter the market area at any one time, how many stalls can be accommodated, the space between stalls, space for customers to queue at stalls, customers direction and flow around the market. It could even affect the time the market may be open.  There is a need for SIGNS to guide customers, Hand Sanitisers and possibly marshals to help the market to be run safely
  • Environmental Health implications. Make sure you have appropriate hand washing and santising facilities. Pre-packed food should be encouraged, but tasters/samples are NOT permitted and customers should NOT be permitted to pick up produce. Special cash handling procedures may be required.

The Guides

You may be requested to provide a Risk Analysis. The following are templates which you can use. Amend and add as you see fit. To create your own version please contact bob@kfma.org.uk and we will send you an amendable version.  The following Guides will be updated as regulations change and when we have additional information (Just click on the name)

Card Readers

We have an agreement with iZettle for members to obtain card readers for £19 + VAT and a transaction charge of 1.5%.

As many Environmental Health Departments are trying to discourage cash we, the Association, will subsidise the price of the Card readers for members so the cost to you will be £10.
