Trading Days and Hours

Every Saturday from 9am – 1pm. We expect stallholders to set up at 9am, and ready to trade. Your vehicle is permitted to unload at your stall for a maximum of 20 minutes, after which time you may drive it to the parking area within the market grounds. A guide on where to go and what to do on arrival will be forwarded to stallholders prior to Market Day.

Eligibility Criteria

At the Bondi Farmers Markets we welcome a number of food and fresh produce stallholders. Our priority is that the people who grow the product, sell it. However, in some cases due to customer demand we allow our producers to source goods from either a grower local to their own farm or via wholesale. If produce is being re-sold our producers are instructed to make the customer aware. Please note that all value-added products must be produced by the stallholder. We also require that the individual selling produce at the stall has a good knowledge of production methods, where the produce is grown, storage and cooking instructions.

Power is $10.00 for 10amp and an extra $20.00 for 15amp (high power users will be quoted special rates on application).

Late Payment Fee

Stallholders must pay online by 5 pm on the Thursday prior to the market that you are booked for, otherwise a $20 late fee will automatically be added to the fee payable. Unlike most other farmers markets, you do not need to pay more than one week’s rent in advance, nor are fees automatically debited out of your account, but fees do need to be pre-paid to assist with our administration.

Please pay on time and avoid paying a late fee.

Equipment

All stallholders are required to trade out of a 3.0m x 3.0 metre WHITE marquee with a plain white roof and sandbag weights. As stated above, marquee hire is $10.00 per week. You are welcome to bring your own marquee if it meets the above requirements and is in good condition. Due to our storage restrictions, regular (weekly) stallholders will have to supply their own marquees and sandbag weights.

It is a stallholder's responsibility to ensure that all equipment brought to or used in the Market is operated in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and recommendations and otherwise in a safe manner at all times. If you use a marquee, you must use weights that are adequate to hold it down in windy conditions.

As for additional equipment to bring, we recommend bringing chairs, display equipment and table covers.

IMPORTANT: All hot food/ready-to-eat food stallholders must bring floor covers(heavy duty tarp). These floor covers must cover the entire cooking and food prep area of your stall preferably 3.0m x 3.0m. Please ensure that liquids cannot leak through your floor covers. If you don't bring appropriate floor covers you will not be allowed to trade. Stallholders may also be asked to cover any costs incurred as a result of cleaning their stall area.

Rubbish, Waste & Responsible Packaging

All rubbish, waste and packaging must be taken away by the stallholder. Bins provided do not cater for stallholder rubbish. The stall site must be left in the condition it was found.

We will be banning all lightweight single use plastic bags (35 microns or less) from Saturday 4 June 2022 as per the NSW Govt Environmental Protection Authority’s new plastic bag policy. Please note that this ban also includes biodegradable plastic bags that are 35 microns or less.

We strongly encourage all of you to change to thicker reusable plastic bags over 35 microns (such as bags at some supermarkets and boutique stores), paper bags or barrier bags (such as produce and deli bags).

**Please note that we will be checking that everyone has ceased use of plastic or degradable bags 35 microns and under, if you are still using them at the market, we will ask you to remove them.

Bad Weather Policy

The Market is conducted in the open air and will operate in varying weather conditions including wet weather. It is the responsibility of the stallholder to bring their own covers, weights to hold down equipment and other equipment for the purpose of protection against adverse weather conditions. The Market will not be cancelled and no credits or refunds are issued in the event of bad weather. Please do not apply for a stall unless you are prepared to take the risk on weather.

Cancellations & Refunds

All cancellations need to be advised by Tuesday 5 pm and MUST be submitted via email to [email protected].

If you are a Regular Stallholder and cancel after this time, your stall fee will still be payable.

If you are a Casual Stallholder and have made a booking after Tuesday 5 pm, you will be required to pay your stall fee regardless of non-attendance.

Further booking requests will be declined until outstanding monies have been cleared. If bookings are cancelled before Tuesday 5 pm prior to Market Day, stall fees may be credited to another week. Stall fees are not refundable.

Public Liability Insurance

All hot food stallholders must have in place their own public and product liability policy providing a minimum of $10 million cover.

All other stallholders must have in place a public liability policy providing a minimum of $5 million cover.

We are not qualified to recommend or provide advice on the most appropriate policy but note that there are a number of companies who offer quick insurance cover for stallholders including: www.stallinsure.com.auwww.netinsure.com.auwww.aami.com.auwww.tradersvoice.com.au, and cityrural.net.au. You should make your own enquiries as to which insurer is best for your requirements.
