First launched in 2018, this initiative devised between Hakanoa Handmade Drinks and the Grey Lynn Farmers Market is an incubator program for sustainable food businesses.

Originally delivered in seminar form by Rebekah at the Grey Lynn Community Centre, it became doubly apparent post-Covid that it wasn’t getting out to a wide enough audience. It was actually Jacinda Ardern’s visit the GLFM and a brief conversation between Jacinda and Rebekah that triggered Rebekah’s epiphany to make it freely available online.

You get the inside story from Grey Lynn Farmers Market stallholders on exactly what it takes to turn dreams into a successful business at the market. You learn how to take your business idea from farmers market to supermarket.

We cover current legal requirements for food production safety from growing to brewing, give some top tips for financial stability, provide some proven marketing advice, and point the newbie at general resources like sustainable production materials and technological guidance.

The 5 clips include interviews with several of our regular and past stallholders and will be presented by Rebekah Hay. Rebekah is the founder of Hakanoa Handmade Drinks and a long-standing volunteer on the GFLM committee.
