Orchard Barn Health Farmers & Artisan Market
Stallholders Information



We are delighted to introduce the Orchard Barn Foodies and Artisan Market, supporting local growers, producers and creators.

With recent events the importance of supporting the local communities and businesses is in the forefront of many peoples minds. Here at Orchard Barn Health we come from a farming background and the quality and locality of the foods we eat has always been very important. We have started the Foodies and Artisan market in order to be a place where all the wonderful local Lincolnshire producers can come together. With a focus on ethical, local and fairtrade, we want to be a haven for foodies.

We are committed to our stallholder, staff and customer safety and you can see our risk assessment guidelines.  

We want to create a vibrant marketplace for food producers and small businesses to sell in the local community

When you come, remember that nothing at the market is mass produced.

Market Dates: 2nd October/ 6th November / 4th December 2021 10am - 2pm

Update 20/09/2021: We have now filled all the Craft stalls for October but have a couple of spaces for food producers, please indicate on the form which market you are applying to attend.

Thank you

Alcohol traders

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY FOR A TEN UNTIL YOU HAVE HAD YOUR BOOKING DATE CONFIRMED

To sell alcohol at the market you will usually need to acquire a TEN (Temporary Event Notice) from the local authority. This generally requires a minimum of 10 days notice and carries a cost of £21.

Sometimes, especially in the run up to Christmas, there will be a number of alcohol traders attending each market. Only one trader should take out the TEN and the cost of the TEN is then split between all alcohol traders attending. Please ensure you have asked if there are other traders selling alcohol before you apply.

A copy of your approved TEN should be sent to us prior to the market.

Your TEN should be available on your stall, on your booking date and alls requirement of the TEN should adhered to. Please ensure you have familiarised yourself with the requirements before you trade.

All alcohol sellers are required to display Challenge 25 details clearly on their stall and actively challenging anyone that appears to be 25 years old or younger.

Booking in

Please drop us email stating the the markets and dates you are interested in. We will check availability, confirm your pitches and ask for payment.

Please note: all pitch fees should be paid in advance, unpaid pitches are not secure but are still subject to the cancellation policy.

Pay

We will send you a link with an invoice for payment.

Stallholder fee is £20, Street Food £35

Due Date & Late Payment

Fees are due at least one week in advance* The payment needs to be cleared with us by the Monday of the week you are attending the market. If you pay later than this, a £5 fee is due.

Weather

We live in England. England has unreliable weather. You must commit to coming, regardless of the weather forecast! We cannot operate a market with fair weather traders. We ALWAYS open the market as long as it is safe to do so.

We do not give credits to traders that cancel for poor weather and those cancelling within the 5 day period will still need to pay for their booked pitches.

If you think you might be a fair weather trader, you can't book pitches in advance. Email us once you've checked the weather to see if we still have space for you!

Cancellations

If you wish to cancel your booking then we require 5 working day notice*, in writing (email!) stating the reason you wish to cancel. The following applies to ALL stallholders;

If you are cancelling more than 5 working days* before your booking;

You are not expected to pay for your booking.

If you have already paid, we will either push the payment over to your next booking OR hold the payment in credit until you book in again.

If you are cancelling within the 5-day period;

You are still liable to for the pitch payment in full / We do not push payments over to other booking or credit payment made.

Stallholders cancelling within the 5-day limit period because of predicted poor weather are still liable for the pitch payment, so please think hard about your cancellation before you let us know.

We do understand that sometimes life gets in the way and so please let us know as soon as possible what the issue is and we will always be as helpful and reasonable as we can.
