New Members
Maybe you have recently retired, or looking to earn some money that fits in with a busy family life.  Perhaps you have an excess of produce from your allotment or garden, or a craft worker looking for a new outlet, whatever your reasons have you thought about joining Ampthill Country Market? Anyone over the age of 16 can join.

We can attend other events, not just the Thursday market, and join with other Country Markets for events.

Why not join us?
Ampthill Country Market is always keen to welcome new members, so if you are someone that can:
  • Cook - such as cakes, pies, preserves, chutneys, savouries
  • Raise plants - from bedding plants to shrubs
  • Grow fuit or vegetables - seasonal from your garden or allotment
  • Crafts - hand make items like knitting, embroidery, watercolours, as long as they are hand crafted and quality finished, they will be considered
  • Or if you just want to come along and help for a couple of hours, to see what we do that would be great too
How is it run?
The market is run as a co-operative, here are a few of the main points on how it is run:
  • there are no minimum quantities
  • you do not have to contribute every week
  • a commission is taken on sales, presently 10%, which covers the cost of the stall and insurance etc
  • you will be paid once a month for your sales less the commission
  • advice on pricing is available
  • packaging is available to buy
  • advice on Food Hygiene certification is available for cooks, as well as financial contribution
  • advice on how to package and produce labels on computer if required
  • advice on recipes
  • there is a rota to 'man' the stall and you would normally have one 2 hour shift a month, but the members are flexible and if you cannot help then arrangements can be made
  • bear in mind the stall is outdoors and whatever products you wish to sell will need to be displayed on a potentially windy and wet market stall!
  • Anyone over 16 can be a member and it costs 5p to join.

So pop along to the market and have a chat with one of our friendly members, or use the Contact Us form on this website to send us an email.
