  • Arrival and 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 1:00pm). 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

    Given the reduction in the number of stalls due to COVID restrictions, and the apparent increased popularity of markets, we require that all sites be booked in advance. We can not guarantee a place to people who have not booked.

    It is recommended that all stalls are paid for in advance to the VBCA bank account. Electronic deposit information is available on request to Peter Sobey at

    market email address

    We are aware that some people are not conversant with internet banking so we do accept cash on the day. 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 shelter shed, 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 so we will be carefully checking stallholders' insurance cover is up to date. Once we have cited your insurance we do not need to see it again until it is renewed.

    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, send a copy of your insurance to

    market email address

    every time you renew or when you make an online booking, or be prepared to purchase cover for the day, on the day.
