Be part of the market!

Murrindindi’s iconic monthly open-air market welcomes all types of stalls, including fruit and veg, crafts, plants and herbs, jewellery and produce. It is an ideal combination. Plenty of foot traffic with the friendliness you only get in the country: this is the perfect market not only for established traders but also for first timers.

The market season is from September to May on the second Saturday of each month from 8.30am to 1.00pm.

Cost per stall is $20.00 with free parking for stallholders and your customers.

Grounds are open from 6.30am for set up.

Advertising and traffic

As a major regional market, the market is well attended. Recent markets have had between 350 and 450 paying individuals plus children under 8 and stall-holders.

We have a very loyal local base, for many of whom this is their only market. A recent survey showed one third of visitors live in Alexandra and almost half came from the immediate area. If you run stalls at other markets, many of our locals may not have seen your stall elsewhere.

We advertise the market through the local Alexandra & Eildon Standard newspaper and local radio UGFM 106.9 (www.ugfm.org) as well as many local Facebook pages and this is a free service for stallholders.

Food stalls

For community groups, the sale of food items at the market requires local council approval.  Contact your local council’s Environmental Health Department for further information and request “Food Safety Program for Charities and Community Organisations”  This applies to shelf-stable foods such as cakes, biscuits, jams or chutneys, sausage sizzles or barbecues.  A letter of approval should be carried with you, as inspectors may visit anytime.

Safety

The market also has a “Safety at the Alexandra Community Market: Guide to Stallholders” manual. A copy can be obtained on market days.

We will be operating a Covid-Safe site during the pandemic. It is a condition of entry and access that visitors and stall-holders comply with signage and any instructions by the Covid-Safe Marshal or any member of the Market Committee regarding Covid Safety.

Insurance

The Alexandra Market strongly supports a safe selling environment and each seller is required to provide their own public liability insurance coverage to cover their liability for damage to property or injury to a third party that occurs within their designated market stall or exhibit area.

Most insurance companies and brokers are able to arrange stall holders Liability Insurance, so contact your insurance company to obtain appropriate cover.
