Under the Harvest Charter, the market aims to have a high percentage of Fresh (primary) producers who have grown, reared, baked, caught, or smoked the product they sell. To ensure that there is a wide range of produce available to meet shopper needs, a number of Value-added and Ready-to-eat producers will be included in the market offering. Preference will be given to Value-added producers that are farm based and use their own farm produce as core ingredients. All value-added and ready-to-eat products must contain a minimum of 50% Tasmanian grown or milled ingredients. Examples of eligible value-added produce include baked goods, jams and preserves, beverages, and oils. The Harvest Committee reserves the right of final decision on the number, variety, fees and location of stalls, in line with the Harvest Charter. The Harvest Committee reserves the right to cancel a Licence to Trade at any time if the stallholder breaches the Charter and/or market rules.
Each stall must be staffed by a person(s) who has intimate knowledge of and direct involvement in the production of any items for sale. Ideally this will be the farmer or primary producer or family member.
INSURANCE AND PERMITS
All stallholders are required to be covered for Public and Product Liability Insurance to the value of $10 million which covers them at the Harvest site as well as their site of production, and a Launceston City Council Temporary Food Business Registration each year where applicable. Stallholders must provide proof on a yearly basis or on request.
As this is an outdoor market there are no refunds or credits for adverse weather.
