So you want to hold a stall? We’d love to hear from you.
There are 3 types of stalls you can participate in;
- Regular Stall – hold a stall to sell your items weekly, fortnightly or monthly. A regular stall is one in which the stall holder participates in at least 5 markets, in the year which runs from January 1 – December 31. A regular stall costs $30 per week, and there is a yearly market
membership fee of $30.
- Casual Stall – excess produce? or excess time? Casual stall holders can have up to 4 or less stalls over the course of the year from January 1 – December 31. (if you decide to have a 5th stall in the year, we simply put you into the ‘regular stall holder category)
- Community Stall – if you have some produce, but not enough for a whole stall, or maybe you want to sell items, but don’t have time to attend the market. The community stall is the stall for you!
To tell us about your items you need to fill in the appropriate expression of interest form (EOI) and return it to us.
