Marketing your Market
Attracting enough customers to your market is crucial to its success. Itís is all about the external marketing that you do Ė how you tell people about your market, where it is and when it runs.
There are lots of things you can do. The challenge is choosing the things that have the biggest impact and are most cost effective.
This section gives you an idea as to what you need to do to set up a new market. We have developed a short questionnaire (click here)
which will help you make your mind whether to continue in your quest and also to help us to answer any questions.
We have developed a comprehensive system Market insurance package
with our Agent which incorporates Public liability (£10M) Product liability (£10M) and Employees liability (£10M) insurance
as well as practical covers derived form our many years of experience in running markets. (Note: volunteers who help you set up the market etc are classified as 'employees' and so you are legally required
to have 'Employees insurance'). The cost of the insurance package is very competitive.
If you are covered by an external organisation's insurance (e.g.a Village Hall) it is your responsibility to MAKE SURE they write to you explaining what you are covered for and the amount ( i.e. not only inside the Village Hall, but outside and anywhere else if you have signs on the highway etc)
It is always best to have a look round at other markets before rushing to take on stallholders. Once you have agreed a contract with a stallholder it is very difficult to replace him/her so it pays to spend time investigating first. Check the quality of produce, how the stallholder sets up their stall and their relationship to customers. The Association maintains a list of stallholders who are looking to expand their business for new markets which is available to all members.
We are building up a Suppliers Catalogue of products you may want for both markets and stalls. Managers and Stallholder Members will also benefit from any discounts we can obtain.

If you know of a supplier who could be useful to members but is not already on the list, please let us know and we will get in touch.
