All about Approval Days
and the Appointment of New Crafters
The Country Craft Market welcomes applications to our Market and looks forward to including new crafts into our product offering. In order to maintain a high standard, there is a selection process that applies to all crafters wishing to join the Country Craft Market.
The Country Craft Market uses Approval Markets to assess all applicants requesting to join the Market. These Markets operate exactly the same way as the usual Country Craft Market events. They are also open to the public to give the applicants an opportunity to show their products, and how they will present them in a real trading market-environment.
One full Approval Day Market is held each year on May 1 or the closest suitable date. Then, when needed, top-up approvals will be conducted at ad- hoc top-up Approval Markets by inviting suitable applicants to participate in our usual markets - where they will assessed using the usual selection criteria.
New members will usually be appointed as Casual Members and their status will be reviewed as and when there is the need to supplement the Permanent Membership. Membership fees, market fees and other relevant conditions will apply according to the rules of the Association. These will be available at the time of application.
