Application Criteria for Food & Drink Stallholders

Application Criteria for Food & Drink Stallholders

In addition to our surf and salty lifestyle stalls, Summer x Salt attracts a number of high quality food and beverage stalls. 

Our food section is hugely popular at all of our beachside events and is constantly growing in demand. 

The Summer x Salt Markets are a great way for you (food stallholders) to interact directly with new and existing audiences, gain face-to-face feedback and have a whole lot of fun while your products are shared with our community.

A large part of maintaining our superior standard at events is due to the care and commitment we take with our application process.
