If your products are legitimate, you will not have a problem. We have a strict policy preventing sellers from offering counterfeit goods for sale, and we regularly have undercover officers from the Department of Commerce performing compliance checks around the market.

As per our conditions of entry, stallholders who are found selling counterfeit goods will be permanently removed from the market without a refund.

Q. Do you offer trestle tables to stallholders?

No, you will need to bring your own table if you wish to use one.

Q. I have lost my receipt, what should I do?

Please visit the Ticketing Office on Sunday where will confirm your identity and reprint your receipt.

Q. I need change for my stall. Can you help?

We strongly suggest you have adequate change available when you set up your stall.  The Ticketing Office may be able to help you, but depending on the time of day we may not have any change to give you.

Q. Any tips on what I should expect or bring on the day?

·         Haggling is common around the markets. Everyone loves getting a bargain though, so make sure your prices are realistic and likely to attract customers.

·         The presentation of your stall is very important. When you are finished setting up, stand back and have a good look at your stall. Is it eye catching and neat? Is it easy to shop from? Are the prices clear? There are plenty of good examples throughout the Markets.

·         Maybe bring a friend, that way, when it is busy, you can have two people operating the stall, and when one of you needs a break, your stall isn’t left empty.

·         Always bring spare price stickers and a marker. If you need to adjust the prices during the day, this is the best way to do it.

·         Make sure you have plenty of change, many customers come to the markets with larger notes and expect you to be able to break them. This just might make the sale.

Q. I have a gazebo, is this okay?

Generally speaking, it is not a problem. However, the bay sizes are approximately 2.5m x 6.5m and all your goods, including your gazebo, must stay inside the blue lines at all times.

Q. I have a portable generator, can I use it?

Unfortunately, due to the noise and fumes generators produce, their use in the market is not allowed.

Q. Can I just show up on the day, rather than pre booking?

Yes, but more choice is available if you book a bay over the phone beforehand.

Q. What payment methods do you accept?

At the ticketing office, we accept cash, cheque and EFTPOS (MasterCard and Visa only).

Over the phone, we accept MasterCard and Visa. 

Q. What information do you require when I book a bay?

We will request your full name, telephone number, address and email address. We may also ask to see identification, which must be produced.
