Top manufacturer helps boost trade for farmer's markets

Gala Tent pop up gazebos have become a favourite among farmer's markets and market traders.

The UK's biggest marquee and gazebo manufacturer Gala Tent Ltd has joined forces with The National Farmers’ Retail and Market Association (FARMA) to support farmers' markets around the country.

The partnership will see Gala Tent Ltd become the primary supplier of market stalls to FARMA members. The company will also work closely with farmer's markets and traders as part of redevelopment projects around the UK. The partnership has allowed FARMA to offer its members high quality pop up market stalls for a discounted price.

Michael Mack, Managing Agent of FARMA commented on the partnership: “FARMA is always looking at ways to support our members and the businesses who supply them. We are delighted that this partnership with Gala Tent will make a huge difference for many of our members”.

“We are very excited to have been able to set up an agreement with Gala Tent Ltd which will not only see our members secure a discount on such a high quality range of products and services, but have Gala Tent as the Sponsor for the 2016 FARMA Best Farmers' Market Award as well”.

Duncan Paget, FARMA Council member and Chair of Themes Valley Farmers' Markets said: “As small businesses in a competitive world creating partnerships with companies like Gala Tent makes a big difference to our Farmers' Markets and their traders. We will be ensuring all our partners are aware of the quality range they can now access through this partnership”.

Gala Tent Ltd has a history of working with various types of markets and traders around the UK, and the company recently supplied Rotherham's Tuesday market with 95 gazebos as part of the town’s redevelopment.
