FAQ

How much does a casual stall site cost?

 

Stall sites start from $70 per day. Please see our casual stall bookings page for a full listing of prices. Half stalls are available.

 

 

How do I book a casual stall?

 

Please refer to our casual stall bookings page. When booking a casual stall, please ensure you have read our market rules and are not selling a restricted product.

 

 

How can I get a permanent stall?

 

Permanent stall holders pay for the entire season on a monthly basis to guaranteeing their trading. Permanent stall prices for the 2016 - 17 season will be released shortly. Please check our permanent stallholder application page for details.

 

 

Having a permanent stall is a great advantage as your customers will know where to find you so you can build a repeat customer base. 

 

 

What size are your stalls?

 

Most of our stall sites are 3m x 2m.  We do have one larger site at the back of the market that is 3m x 3m, this larger site is reserved for massage stalls and is the only site at the market that is permitted to use a marquee. Most traders have to customise their set-up to accommodate our stall size.

 

 

Can I use my Marquee or Tent?

 

Tents and marquees are not permitted (other than for the large massage stall site). This is due to council requirements.

 

 

Do I need Public Liability Insurance?

 

The Market does not provide Public Liability Insurance or Product Liability Insurance for stall holders. It is a requirement of the market that to trade you must have Public Liability Insurance. You will be required to provide a copy of your insurance details before being permitted to trade. Either bring a copy with the first time you trade, or email us a copy.

There are limited legal parking and unloading areas near the market. Stallholders are not permitted to be on site before 12pm and under no circumstances may traders unload their vehicle onto the site prior to 12pm.

 

All vehicles associated with the stall holders shall comply with the provisions of the Motor Traffic Act and not stand, or park contrary to 'No Standing', 'No Parking' or 'No Stopping' signs etc.

 

 

Where can I park?

 

The market is located in the heart of Bondi Beach’s shopping zone, surrounded by restaurants, opposite the main pedestrian crossing to the beach overlooking the ocean and as a result the area does not have any parking areas designated for our sole use.

Within the immediate area of the market, there is paid street parking on Gould St and Campbell Parade. There is also paid parking available at Pacific Bondi, entry via Curlewis street (operated by Wilson Parking - please check the Wilson parking website for rates). Free parking can be found within a 5 to 10 minute walk from the market in North Bondi.

Regular traders have in the past leased parking spaces from local residents at reasonable prices

 

 

What if it's wet?

 

Please bring emergency covering (i.e. plastic sheeting) for your stall in case of rain - there is no shelter available on the market site and market stalls are not permitted to shelter in front of the shops.

Please note tents and marquees are not permitted with the exception of the single marquee site reserved for a massage stall.

 

Does it get windy by the beach?

 

Yes, being by the sea, it can get very windy. Traders should ensure that their stall has been built to withstand strong winds. Please do not come unprepared.
