Frequently Asked Questions for Stallholders
This is a "makers market" - please only apply if you make, design or create your product in some way. And although we love our Tupperware and Avon network marketing products etc. our aim to focus on locally made/designed products.
How much is a stall?
$130 for a 2m x 1m SPACE ONLY
$65 for a 1m x 1m SPACE ONLY
*This means your table/chair/stall set up etc. must fit in!
THIS IS A NO MARQUEE EVENT in the Eltham Town Square
If you are food truck or a hot food stall set up you ARE able to bring a marquee and have more space. However numbers are VERY limited :)
No coffee vendors are needed for this event.
How long does it take for me to find out if I got in or not?
Please allow for up to 14 business days to find out if you have been successful in your application or not. As organisers we want to ensure we are getting a good even spread of stall holders to ensure it makes a great market for both you and the customer. We receive hundreds of applications for this market and the process to sort through them all takes some time. Please note not all applicants will be successful as there is limited space in the Town Square.
Can I bring my own table & chairs?
Yes, please do, or any stall set up you require, as long as it fits in the allotted space. Market umbrellas are encouraged for sun/rain protection. We cannot guarantee you will be in the shade/undercover so please bring what you need to protect your stock.
This is a Twilight Market do I need to bring my own lights?
Yes, please do! It will make the area look bright and festive! There will be street lights to help light the area as well.
Can I have a preference as to where my stall is located?
We will do our best to accommodate these requests however it may not always work out. So please feel free to ask but don't be disappointed if we cannot accommodate these requests.
When is bump in/bump out?
All these details will be emailed to you in the weeks leading up to the event. So keep an eye out in your inbox for more information. Bump out begins as soon as the event ends, there will be no packing up before the event ends, if you are unwell please arrange someone to come and look after your stall.
Can I share my stall?
Yes, you may however this needs to be made clear in your application
Can I sell other things than what I mentioned in my application?
Afraid the answer is no. To be fair to other stall holders, we only allow what is mentioned in the application form to be sold at the market. If you apply to sell plants and flowers, but decide at the last minute to bring a few homemade candles along as well, you will be asked to put them away. We aim to create a diverse range of products on offer to make the market a good one for both the Stallholder and the customer. Please think through your application carefully.
Do I need public liability insurance?
Yes, if successful you will need to email a copy of it to the market organiser.
What does my stall fee cover?
The stall fees assist us with covering entertainment hire, insurance costs, entertainment, printing, and organising fees so much more.
Is my stall fee negotiable?
I am afraid not. We work to a really tight budget to bring you the best market possible.
What happens if I need to cancel?
I am afraid we do not offer refunds. So please book carefully.
What if it rains?
We cannot control the weather. In most cases of light rain the market will continue. We encourage you to bring a market umbrella and/or a plastic cover to ensure your goods are kept out of the weather. In the case of a major storm (hail/lightning etc) organizers will sadly need to cancel the event for the safety of the stallholders and the customers.
