Stall Holder Information

  • Opening Hours:  The market runs from 9 am -2 pm every Saturday
    and is only closed on days of Total Fire Ban. It is your responsibility to check CFA announcements to see if there is a total fire ban in place in the Central District.
  • How to book a stall:
    Park on the street outside the market grounds on Saturday morning before 7:45 am
    Walk to the St Andrews hall.
    There will be a sign up sheet on a table outside the hall. 
    Sign on by 7.45 am Saturday morning.
    Do not enter the market with your car until after you have been allocated a spot and a committee member gives you the go ahead.
  • Sign on sheets: are located in front of the hall each Saturday morning between: 7.30 am-7.45am
  • Stall allocations: Stall allocation will be from 8:00 to 8:30 am
  • Stall cost:  $25 cash only – Please bring the correct amount.
  • Late arrivals: You may still be allocated a spot if you arrive after 8:30. The fee is $30 if you arrive after 8.30 am.
  • Non-payment: You must have paid, have a receipt, and have been allocated a site before driving your vehicle into the market.
    Do not start setting up or start unloading items within the market unless you have a stall holders receipt issued by a committee member.
    No receipt and/or non payment will result in exclusion from the market and being required to having to leave the market immediately leave the market area.
  • Will you get a site?  Those who are flexible in how they set up will almost always be allocated a stall site. We recommend attending a few markets as a stall holder throughout the year before the busy November/December season starts to get a feel for how the market works.
    IMPORTANT: If you intend to sell food please see the section below on Food and consumable products.
  • Items available for hire: No items are available for hire.
    You must bring your own canopy, tables, chairs (if you want to sit), and weights for your canopy.

  • Marquee Weights: It is your responsibility to secure your canopy, marquee and gazebos with appropriate weights at all times. The St Andrews ground is hard and clay like. We allow pegs into the ground however you may not be able to safely secure your marquee due to the terrain. You must ensure your marquee is weighted/secured to the ground at all times. Steel weights are preferable. Be prepared for gusts of wind
    regardless of the weather forecast. There are no weights to be borrowed nor hired from the market.

General information to be familiar with on market day:

  • When you have a receipt and have paid for your stall wait near the hall (on the right side) for a volunteer to help you find a site.
  • Once a site is selected place your receipt under a rock to reserve the site. If you don’t do this the site may be allocated to someone else.
  • Items listed on sign on sheets must match what you sell. Listing as handmade means by you. If items are not as described you may be asked to remove them.
  • Stall sites must stay within the allocated site boundary. In other words if you have paid for a 3×3 site you must keep your stall within 3×3.
  • All canopies must be side by side with no gaps and pegged /secure at all times or you will be asked to remove. Sites are 3×3.
