It has been prepared especially for farmers' market stallholders and market managers to assist in their duty of care to ensure focus on food safety and food safe markets. This is the first time there had been a specific safe food resource (38 pages) for the farmers' market sector.

Liquor Control Regulations 

From the 11th January 2017 there have been changes to the Liquor Control Regulations 1989 that all WA Farmers Market managers need to be aware of.

Up until now the following requirement has applied:

 

Where liquor producers have an association or representative body that hosts a cooperative stall at a local farmers market in an agricultural region, liquor may be sold (provided it is no more than 2.5 litres) or provided by way of free sample. Orders for larger quantities can be taken, to be supplied at a later date.

 

It has now been amended to:

 

The existing exemption for Producers to sell their liquor at farmers’ markets has been expanded. The exemption now applies to farmers’ markets held anywhere in WA, a maximum of 9 litres per customer can be sold and the stall can be operated by individual producers (not just associations). Refer to page 4 of the website.
