Covid 19 restrictions means The Market will not be as per normal.

CONDITIONS you agree to, to have a stall at Bangalow Market

  • Priority for casual stalls goes to Byron Shire residents and then residents from the surrounding shires (Ballina, Tweed and Lismore), who make or grow 100% of the product they sell.
  • Only food that is made or grown in Byron and the three surrounding shires is permitted.
  • A driver’s license is the preferred ID. All stallholders must have their own Public and product Liability Insurance Policy with a minimum cover of $10 million. A copy of the Certificate of Currency must be produced in order to obtain a stall. Insurance cannot be purchased on the day at Bangalow Market.
  • Stallholders will need to sign a COVID-19 Compulsory Requirements and Best Practice Guidelines agreement.
  • Those stallholders who require a Covid-19 Safety Plan must provide a copy when applying for a stall. The stallholders who require a COVID-19 Safety Plan include those selling any food products, beauticians, therapists, massage therapists, tattoo (henna) artists, hairdressers, face painters and any workshop type activities.
  • How to Obtain a Permanent Stall Site

  • Permanent stall sites are only issued to Byron, Ballina, Tweed and Lismore shire residents, who make, grow, cook or refurbish the products they are offering for sale. We are currently not taking permanent stall applications from clothing or jewellery stalls. To apply for a permanent stall site it is necessary to attend the market as a casual stallholder in order for your product to be verified.
  • Applications for permanent stalls are taken at the information caravan, located near the Market Street entrance between 2 and 3 pm on market days.
  • A driver’s license is the preferred ID. All stallholders must have their own Public Liability Insurance Policy with a minimum cover of $10 million. A copy of the Certificate of Currency must be produced in order to obtain a stall. Insurance cannot be purchased on the day at Bangalow Market. Stallholders who require a COVID-19 Safety Plan must give a copy to management when applying for a permanent stall.
  • The policy concerning permanent stallholders has been developed over time and now reflects the situation for a new stall to enter the market. Within the market there are a number of stallholders who do not reside in the Byron, Ballina, Tweed & Lismore shires and who do not make, grow, cook or refurbish the products they are offering for sale. These stalls are at the market because they had stalls at the market before the current policies were developed. Many of these stalls were foundation stallholders establishing their stall in the 80’s and have contributed to the ultimate success that Bangalow Market has become. Over time a number of stalls have grown to become businesses and shops in Byron Bay and the Byron Arts and Industrial Estate and their continued presence at the market is a testament to their dedication as stallholders. Some of the permanent stallholders have also moved outside of the shire and established businesses in other towns. The rules and regulations have allowed them to continue to be a stallholder at the markets. We hope this rather detailed explanation overcomes what appears to be an anomaly for those wishing to start a stall at the markets who either live outside of the shires listed, or are selling a product that does not fit the description requirements for a permanent stall.

    Public Liability Insurance

    If you Google ‘market insurance for stallholders’ you will be given a range of companies that cover stallholders at competitive prices.
    Most Business Insurance policies can be extended to cover sales at markets.

    Stall Site Fees

    The current basic stall fee is $40 for craft stalls and $50 for category 1 and 2 food and drink stalls for a 4 metre frontage. Stall site depths vary. Please have exact money so that no change is required. ,p>

    Food and Drink Stalls

    At the moment there is no availability for Category 1 food and drink stalls (made or served on site) or Category 2 food and drink stalls (minimal processing on site). Category 3 food stalls (pre packed) such as jams, cakes, condiments etc are welcome, subject to being licensed by Byron Shire Council. A COVID-19 Safety Plan is required.

    Buskers may perform at suitable locations in the market grounds for a period of no more than 20 minutes in each location. After 20 minutes you may move to another location.

    Suitable locations are those where pedestrian access will not be blocked as a result of a crowd gathering to watch or listen to a busker performing.

    Market management reserve the right to ask buskers to stop performing as a result of inappropriate behaviour or if access by market goers to stalls and/or exits are blocked as a result of a busker’s performance.

    Buskers are not allowed to use any form of sound amplification at the Bangalow Market. (This policy is a part of the Byron Shire Market Policy).
