Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some things we get asked about frequently enough for us to create an FAQ page.

How often do you host your market?

Our markets are held twice a year. Our Winter Market is normally held in June/July and our Christmas Market is held in November. 

 

Is there Eftpos available?

A small selection of our stallholders have Eftpos and Credit Card facilities and we will have two mobile ATM machines available ($3 withdrawal fee). We strongly recommend bringing cash with you. 

 

Is there free carparking?

Yes! At all our markets we make sure there is free carparking available. Where? It all depends on where we hold our markets, keep an eye out on our website and Facebook page for information.

 

Is there a cover charge to get into the market?

No, our markets are free of charge for all our shoppers.

Is there a directory of stallholders?

A fortnight prior to all our markets, we upload a map of our market which indicates who will be there and where they will be located. Stall holders directory can be found here. 

Can you bring prams?

We strongly recommend that you use a baby carrier rather than a pram. We do our best to plan for extra wide walkways but being pram-free allows you to have your hands free to look at products and allows for maximum walking space for all shoppers. We may organise a pram parking area in our new winter venue, stay tuned on this. 

 

Can I bring my pet to the market?

You're welcome to bring your pets to the market, however they will not be allowed in the venue.

 

Will there be food available?

Yes, there will be food and drink vendors. 

 

Is the market on in all weather conditions?

Yes. Our Winter markets are on, rain or shine - our stalls are primarily indoors. Our Summer Market is on rain or shine, but if conditions are extreme, it won't be on, keep an eye on our Facebook page.
