Tip – Have your business details, promotional images and documents ready before applying. It is also recommended to apply via a desktop computer rather than your phone.

When will I know if I am successful?

We receive a high number of applications so please be patient with us as we thoroughly screen each individual application 🙂 We endeavour to respond via email two to three weeks after you have applied.  If you do not hear from us within 4 weeks, you can log into the online portal and check the results.

If I am unsuccessful, will I receive feedback?

Due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to provide feedback on all applications. You will receive an email letting you know the outcome which can also be viewed on the online portal.

How much does it cost to have a stall?

The costs for a stall are $110 per market for a retail vendor or $140 for a food vendor. The sites are 3x3m. You may purchase two sites for a double stand.

I need to cancel my spot. Can I please get a refund?

Yes, we are able to refund 50% of the fee back to you. The other 50% deposit is non-refundable as it covers our admin costs for running the event.

What is the deal with stall presentation?

All stalls are required to be presented in a high quality retail appearance that is neat, tidy and beautiful. This is your first impression so make it count. Professional signage should be tied securely to the stall as the reserve gets windy.

You will need to obtain a City of Stirling Permit to Sell Food. Please contact the City directly.

Do you have powered stalls?

Power access it reserved for food vendors. Please notify us of your power requirements on your application form.

We aim for a 100% single use plastic and waste free event. Food vendors should encourage customers to borrow from the Mug Library. We encourage you to BYO bags and mugs/eating utensils. All packaging should be compostable and

Can I choose my stall location?

Site maps are created by the SummerXSalt team based on several criteria. These include, but are not limited to, the size of your stall, the product category and specific requests. We endeavour to allocate sites fairly based on stallholder needs. Please include requests for placement in your application form. These will always be considered seriously, however we cannot guarantee that all requests will be filled.

When will I find out where my space?

We send out the site map and bump in schedule 1 week before each market.

Can I share a space?

We generally don’t allow for this but we may consider it if your brands align.

What do I need to bring as a stallholder?

We provide you with a 3x3m space (bigger spaces available upon request). You will need to bring your own marquee, weights, table, signage etc. All stalls must have a back.

Do I need a credit card/eft facility?

No, but it is recommended you do for the convenience of your customers as there are no ATMs around. Options include Square or Paypal.
