Information for Regular and Casual Stall Holders

Booking Requirements

For enquiries about our next market call the Market Manager, Gary, on 6569 5410.

Generally speaking we do not require stallholders to confirm their attendance except if the following is applicable to you:

1. You are selling food or drinks

To ensure that we have sufficient space in the food court we need any food or drinks vendors to request and/or confirm attendance. Please note that all food outlets must have their own insurance cover; we cannot supply casual insurance for such stalls.

2. You require power

Due to the limited availability of powered sites, stallholders needing mains power must book in advance. Likewise, if you have made a booking and are not attending for any reason, then you must notify us beforehand.

Contact the Market Manager no later than the Wednesday prior to the market if you need to book, or cancel, a powered site.

On market day ensure that you arrive well before the market opens at 8am as we need to spend extra time to make the necessary connections.

3. You want to be in the Community Tent

The Community tent has proved very popular for new stallholders, those with seasonal produce, or those with very limited space requirements. It's been so popular, you now need to book if you want a spot here. Priority will be given to new starters, seasonal produce, and locally made products or craftwork.

You can just turn up on the day but precedence will be given to those who have reserved a place beforehand.

If you have booked a spot and are unable to make it for any reason then please contact us as soon as possible beforehand. The tent is often booked out and we have a waiting list so if you have booked a spot but fail to turn up, thus denying another stall holder, we reserve the right to charge you a no-show fee or refuse a future booking.

Arrival & Departure

Vehicles will only be allowed to unload before market opens to the public (6am to 8am) and load only after the market closes (after 2pm). This is a Health and Safety regulation! If you wish to leave earlier your vehicle must be escorted by a committee member. After setting up your site, stallholder's vehicles should be moved away from the market area.

Stall Fees

Market staff will collect fees from all stall holders after the commencement of the market.

If you decide to leave before your fees have been collected it is your responsibility to come to the market office, located near the Lion's Van, and pay your fees.

Insurance

Complying with our insurance commitments is a major requirement for our market's survival. Our permit to run the community market is dependent on all stallholders having verifiable insurance cover on the day soo we will be carefully checking stallholders' insurance cover is up to date at every market day.

If you don't have a copy of your current insurance with you on market day, you will need to buy casual stallholder cover for the day, or you may be asked to leave the market.

NOTE: All food vendors must have their own insurance cover.

So please bring a copy every time or be prepared to purchase cover for the day, on the day.

Postponement & Cancellation Policy due to Bad Weather
