Become a Trader

Anyone wanting to get involved with KERB and our markets must first become a member of KERB.

Read on to find out what we look for

 

Being a member of KERB adds value and gravitas to your street food business - and the chance to be part of a really unique community. We make big efforts to know and consider each trader before they join us because we need to be sure that every new KERBanist is going to fit in with the family. This is a carefully selected group of businesses that are all doing great things for this industry. Running KERB as a membership organisation keeps the standards high and the opportunities growing.

 

Please be aware that we are currently at capacity. If your application is introducing us to something really different then we will be in touch, otherwise we store all applications and may get in touch further down the line.
 

 

What Traders Say ABout Us



Why KERB? ...by our traders.



WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN OUR TRADERS

 

Great trader - are you a 'do-er'?

 

Great food - pushing the flavour boundaries and knowing your product

 

Great stall - professional, inviting, clean and able to brighten up the kerb

 

Great practices - Are you a member of NCASS

 

Great ambassador - We like collaborators who want to help make this thing better

 

Sounds like you? Read on…
 

OUR PROCESS FOR SIGNING UP TRADERS IS:

1. Before we even start talking, we need to know that you have the basics of street trading:

 

- NCASS membership

- Your own gazebo/van to trade from

- A place where you trade that we could arrange to come and see you in action
 


2. Meeting you

 

We need to come and meet you at your stall and try your food. Once we have read your application - and if we like what we read - we will contact you and work out a plan for visiting you. If we don’t feel you are suitable for KERB right now then you won't hear from us. 

 

If this goes well we will invite you to come and try out on the KERB!
 


3. Signing up

 

If the trial goes well and everyone is happy, we will send you our KERB Sign-Up pack (T&Cs, Trader Profile Sheet, Sourcing Questionnaire, H&S docs checklist, photos request).

 

Once we have received all of this information signed and in date we will send out an invoice for one year’s membership (pro rata) and start preparing your trader profile.

 

Once your profile is complete you can get stuck in and start enjoying the value that being part of KERB will bring to you and your business!

 

WE WON'T CONSIDER ANY APPLICATION THAT HAS DODGY PHOTOS AND DOESN'T SHOW US YOUR STALL OR FOOD CLEARLY
