For organizers and creators, organizing markets it is not an easy task. These people have to think twice about having enough time for the markets and all the circumstances that belong to them. Finding a good place, suitable operator, supplier is the basis, but it also includes compliance with different regulations, city approval and other important things.
The first step is very important and crucial for the organization of markets. People who oversee and manage the markets are one of the most important people at all. Operators can decide whether to drive the markets themselves, or leave the management to another person. These people need to consider whether they have enough time for the markets, because the operation of a quality market requires in most cases half and sometimes all the time. If they find it challenging for them, it is better to find a suitable substitute. This should be done by, for example, the city's office where the markets are held. At the meeting with the Authority, the operator will propose the concept of the farmers' markets, depending on whether the Market Authority will be interested or not. Municipal authorities are usually interested in markets, but they do not want to organize themselves. "In this case, you have to look elsewhere: to join friends in the search for social networking, to advertise in local newspapers, or in co-operation with the city hall, to the city newsletter, etc. The municipal office can also declare a con- cure to the operator. In the event that suitable candidates can be found, it is advisable to verify the appropriate incentives for the market. It should be seen that they are interested in leading markets fairly and are interested in bio products and markets in general.
The success of the markets is very much the place where they are held. Inspiration can be places where they have traditionally been held in the past. When looking for a suitable place, it is necessary to take into account the demands of farmers (availability for goods with cars, parking and technical equipment) and customers (transport accessibility from the place of residence, overall pleasant appearance). However, some technical parameters are key to market functioning: access to electricity, water and sewerage. At the local offices, the availability of connections can be verified, or the need for adjustments needed. When preparing them, it is therefore very important to choose the place of the markets, a suitable place does not only affect the customers but also the farmers who sell their products on our market.
Most of today's markets originated from the enthusiasm of individuals who want to provide themselves and their families with better local food. These people did not have experience with similar work, but they still decided to implement the farmers' markets, and it is now possible to say that they have succeeded. Most often the markets are in the middle of a town or village, which means they are in a public space. Since this area belongs to a city, region or village, it is necessary to agree with this institution the conditions and permission to hold the farmers' markets. A future contract between the future market operator and the city office should be signed, which must certainly include the responsibilities of both parties: what the operator or tenant must provide and what the city will provide as the landowner. The contract is usually written by the lawyer of the city office.
For the good functioning of the market, it is important to find suitable suppliers who will meet the required conditions and product quality. Finding a good farmer, but it is not that easy, it is one of the most difficult and very challenging tasks for the market operator. It also depends on which products and products are to be sold on the market, so it should be adapted to the supplier's requirements (originality, organic food, regional product).
Contract with vendors
For greater certainty, contracts with sellers are concluded to guarantee compliance with market rules and determine partial terms. The contract should also mention the price of goods - it should not go and deliberately overproduced products. Vendors should also be thoroughly scrutinized, not just honest farmers, but also scammers. Any bad decision can come back, so be careful to keep every farmer running his booth or care for him by the person authorized by him. If food is also processed, it is good to check the origin of the food. Not only to be a local producer, but also a country of origin. It would not be good for the credibility of the markets if local quality were to be mentioned with foreign products.
