- Type:Local Focus
- Local Clubs:Food & Wine
“…the way farmers’ markets should be”
The FP2P Program distinguishes authentic farmers’ market stallholders from other market participants. It works to recognise and promote as well as increase the profit and viability of our genuine producers. Members are provided with exclusive on-site signage and media exposure, as well as the right to display the unique FP2P Accreditation symbol and stamp of approval at their market stall. The accreditation program ensures that the public are only buying from genuine producers, giving them the rightful chance to be educated on where their food comes from and how it is grown, raised or made, as well as meeting customer’s expectations of the way authentic farmers’ market should be.
One of the FP2P Program’s aims is to continue to build the “social aspect” and “sense of community” at all farmers’ markets by encouraging customers to take more interest in the items they are buying and ask more questions about the origin of the food. Customers will come to you for information and understanding, with the reassurance you are an authentic stallholder. Producers should see an involvement in the FP2P Program as a unique chance to proudly educate the public about life on the land and take this opportunity to promote the love, passion and dedication that goes into producing food for our country.
FP2P understands the work involved in attending a farmers’ market, so make sure you to get the most out of it by becoming accredited!
Some of the many benefits provided to accredited stallholders include:
*Your own FP2P stall sign and certificate
*Widespread media coverage all year round
*Several radio interviews
*Your profile and selected products promoted on the FP2P website (www.frompaddocktoplate.com.au)
*Editorials in selected newspapers and magazines
*A short video filmed on farm for promotional purposes
*An opportunity to feature in the proposed FP2P book sequel and documentary for promotional purposes
*Social media coverage on Twitter and Facebook (a way to communicate with your customers)
*Free annual subscription to the FP2P newsletter
*Free communication with your customers via the FP2P contact database
*Notification of new market stalls available throughout WA farmers' markets
*Potential to sell more product
*Reduced competition with re-sellers
*An ability to sell your seconds

- Local Clubs:Food & Wine,Social Club
- Industry & Politics:Industry Assn
Working to help ‘bridge the gap’ between city and country WA, the Society’s activities are focused on showcasing the many and varied achievements of rural Western Australia. Since the founding of the Society in 1831, RASWA has successfully encouraged and assisted the development of Western Australian resources – including agricultural, horticultural, viticultural, industrial, rural, technological, commercial and mineral resources.
Operating under the Royal Agricultural Society Act, the Society plays a key role in agricultural shows and rural events around the State. We have close links to regional agricultural societies and livestock breed societies. We support community and junior sporting groups which use Claremont Showground.
We encourage regional and agricultural students through our involvement in educational scholarships and competitions which enhance the skills and opportunities of young people.
We recognise the achievements of individuals through the Agricultural Hall of Fame, the Rural Community Achiever and the Rural Ambassador awards.
RASWA holds freehold title to the land at Claremont and its tenure is enshrined in an Act of Parliament. With that comes an obligation and a responsibility to utilise the grounds to its best advantage. Accordingly RASWA’s vision is to have these grounds, with their strategic location, not only a focal point for showcasing the best of rural Western Australia, but a year round centre for innovation, education and entertainment.
Each year Claremont Showground hosts a diverse range of events, exhibitions and festivals in a variety of pavilions, function / seminar rooms, arena and outdoor areas.
RASWA is also responsible for the organisation and management of Western Australia’s largest annual community event, the Perth Royal Show. Like no other event, the Perth Royal Show is a show for the people – a great example of how the RAS serves the community and achieves its mission objectives. The Perth Royal Show competitions benchmark excellence across a range of industries including livestock, wine making, beer production, dairy, food production, clothing production, the arts and sport.
