Start-up Farmers Market

This year’s Royal Welsh Winter Fair will host a unique ‘Start-up Farmers Market’ for newly established food and drink businesses.

Being made possible due to a partnership between the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society and the Agora project, the initiative aims to give these small businesses the opportunity to build confidence and key retail skills through a programme of training and support.

The businesses selected to take part in the new Start-up Farmers Market at this year’s Winter Fair consist of enterprising individuals who have an aspiration to develop their idea into a thriving business.

Being able to test the market in this way will enable these new businesses to carry out research and gain the skills and confidence to take their business to the next level… they may even see themselves in the Royal Welsh Food Hall next time!

Visitors to the Winter Fair will have the opportunity to visit and purchase food, drink and gifts from the Start-up Farmers Market, situated outside the society’s main office, during both days of the event. Don’t miss this opportunity to be one of the first to sample some of the future Welsh branded produce on offer!
