General information

The aim of the market is to provide makers with the opportunity to promote and sell their products and to offer a unique and diverse selection of high quality handmade wares which have been made by the stallholder. 

By “maker” we mean that you personally design and hand-make your own wares. Wares must be hand-made and hand crafted by you.

Preference will be given to makers who are local to Nillumbik and surrounds, but makers from any area may apply.

  • Stallholders are responsible for ensuring that they conform to any Australian standards pertaining to their product.
  • Stallholders must be 18 years and over.
  • The stallholder fee is $35. This will be collected if you are offered a place in the Market. Places will be confirmed by 15 September.
  • Maximum area provided for a stall is 3m x 3m where you have a marquee. If you do not have a marquee the area allocated to you may be less than 3m x 3m.
  • Stall holders are required to provide their own display requirements (i.e. table, display stands, marquee, signage) and will be required to set up and pack up. 
  • We do not provide power to sites.
  • Our Markets are plastic bag free zones – you must provide alternatives. Please try to reduce waste and use recycled and/or recyclable packaging and materials and remove all waste at the end of the day. 
  • All stallholders must be open for business during the Market hours. Specific set-up times will be communicated prior to each Market.
