Recently Asked Questions

Q: Please can you let me know the reasonable cost of a stall and why are some so expensive?

R: The cost of stall ranges anywhere from FREE to $200 or more! It all depends on the type of markets and whether it is sponsored. The cost of organising a market event can be very costly, especially when the markets are providing facilities such as power, lighting, securities, traffic controls, staffs, entertainments, bins and clean up crews, toilets, and advertising, not to mention the compulsory insurances, licenses, hire of ground, and permits for stallholders.Most markets in Perth average around $50 to $100 per stall space at a 4 to 5 hours market. When choosing a market, you would want to assess whether your products are more suitable for a more expensive special event market such as an Expo or a regular weekly market such as a farmers market. You might find that you do better at a more expensive specialty market or vice versa. The best way to figure this out is to pay attention the next time you visit a market!

Q: Hello Grace, can you please tell if and how I could become a " Stall Holder " I would be selling hand made and imported costume jewellery along with my own natural bush wood creations, thank you

R: Thank you for getting in contact and it is my honour to welcome you as a new handmade stallholder to the local market world! First of all, anybody can become a stallholder when you have something to offer! For starters, you don't need to register ABN as a casual stallholder, although I would recommend a good business name and brand for your stall and a nice business card to hand to your customers. Social media such as Facebook and Instagram are great place to connect to the market scene. If you have not already done so, I would highly recommend creating a new business page for your new stall with some pretty pictures! You can join groups on Facebook and find out the latest updates and discussions about markets and events. *Do a search on 'market' or 'stallholders' and you will find many. You might also want to think about getting public liability insurance if you are thinking of becoming a regular stallholder, as many markets requires their stallholders to have their own public liability insurance. When you are ready, approach the organisers of the markets that you are interested to trade at, pick out your market dates, and put in your applications! I've always advised my stallholders to visit the markets before applying so to observe the demographic and potential of the markets for you. Lower cost markets are not always the best and neither are the more expensive ones. It's very much dependent on the time of the year, the location of the markets, and also the kind of visitors the markets are attracting. That said, advise coming from experienced stallholders, you would never know whether you would do good at a market or not until you try, and give a market three tries before backing out. Always remember, attending markets is only one of many ways to promote and sell your products. 


Hashtags are used by people in social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc to relate their posts to a certain group. when you hashtag a word, that word becomes a "topic link". For example, if you use in your post with the word #perthmarkets, then your post along with other posts that have the word #perthmarkets would come up in the search page, when you click on the link "#perthmarkets". This is particularly helpful when you are looking for a specific topic or more importantly, help others find your posts.

I would advise against #hashtag every word in your post's description as that make it hard to read. A neater approach I believe, is to come up with a catchy description for your post, and use up to four keyword #hashtags or @tags at the end. If you have more #hashtags and @tags that you would like to add, do it in comments.
