Set-up times

Set-up is between 3.00pm to 5.00pm on market days. We suggest getting in early so you can present your stall at its best and be less frazzled with the experience.

We want to give our stall holders a fair go by making sure we limit the number of repeat or similar product lines. This way we keep the markets interesting and varied for market goers and give our stall holders every opportunity to benefit.

It's an outdoor market so we're at the mercy of the weather gods. In the event of inclement weather, the market will be cancelled. In this case, we'll let you know by 10.30am on the day of the market. Don't worry; you want loose your site fee. We'll reimburse you for the full amount should we cancel.

Cancellations

If for some unforeseen reason, you can't make it to the market - please let us know as early as you can. We won't issue you a refund but appreciate you letting us know.
