Frequently asked questions:
IS THERE A FREE SPOT AVAILABLE? By filling out the form or sending us an e-mail, you are registering into our database. Please, describe your products and present yourself. If you don’t get a reply from us in 1 month, it means we do not have space for your products in the market at the moment. If this changes, we will contact you.
WHAT IS THE FEE FOR RENTING A STAND? This depends on the size of your shop, the type of products you have (if you are a farmer, you will have a cheaper price than a place with refreshments for the same space). It depends if you need electricity and other amenities. Charity projects do not pay a fee, we will pay everything for them, including the rent that we pay to the city of Prague.
WHAT TYPES OF PRODUCTS CAN I SELL? We are a farmer’s market and our goal is to support farmers and small food manufacturers. On a smaller scale, we also accepts refreshment stands or handmade products. Foreign farmer’s products can be sold if you agree on it with the market’s management. We are limited in the amount of foreign products we sell by the Kodex of Asociace farmářských tržišť (The Association of Farmer’s Markets). We don’t accept shops that have a much higher price than the usual price of the products that they are selling.
How do I start? What can I sell?
You will sign a contract with us. We will also need the price list of your products. If you want to change the products that you are selling, you need to have the permission from the market’s management. You need to get this permission before you bring your new products to the market. You cannot sell wholesale products, it is a violation of the contract.
Who can sell?
Only the farmer or the producer, or a seller who has a written permission from him. The seller has to show this written permission as well as an ID if asked by the management. .
The sellers have their own stands. They bring it, set it up and take it apart themselves at the end of the day. We recommend something clean, esthetically pleasing and from a natural material. The stand has to be clean.
The usage of electricity has to be agreed on in the contract. All apliances used must have valid revisions.
