PAYMENT OF INVOICES
An invoice will be emailed to advise which date/s you have been allocated.
Payment for all market dates booked must be received in full within the time specified on the invoice. NO PAYMENT by due date = NO BOOKING
Note: Payment is required within 5 days of invoice receipt.

All markets booked and paid in full will be emailed a site map for the upcoming market 2 weeks prior to the event. Please note: stall sites are allocated differently for each market (depending on stallholders) – so you may be in a different spot each time. The allocations are made by the committee and are final.

DO I NEED TO BE PRESENT ON MARKET DAY?
YES! We are a Makers Market and we often promote the fact that you are on hand to discuss your products and interact with market visitors. It is part of our T&Cs for the maker to be present on market day and you are agreeing to this when you apply.
Feel free to bring along a helper on the day too though!
