Season Pass Holders will be given premium positions and the ability to reserve these positions each year.
If you purchase a season pass we would anticipate that you attend every Sunday of the season. If you do not the Greytown Country MARKET reserves the right to forfeit your premium stall position and payment refund. This will be done on a case by case basis. The Season pass fee must be paid in full prior to the first market commencing.
We are always on the look out for wonderful items for our market. As the market has a small number of stalls (30 or less) it is really important that we don’t have too many of the same thing. We will limit each type of stall to two so we can ensure variety and broader customer appeal.
Confirmation of Your Stall
Once your application to have a stall with us has been approved you will receive an email from us with our bank account details. Your site will be confirmed when your payment clears.
Council Permits and Food Stalls
The SWDC require us to submit information to them if you are planning on having food prepared at the park for sale so please email the appropriate paper work for us with your application.
Food stalls will be required to fill in a food stall application form, this covers off hygiene and safety food practices. Some food providers will already been registered with the council, so these ones just need to be registered with the Greytown Country MARKET event, as they supply all of their food information direct to the council already.
In the past a large number of phone calls and texts have been sent regarding this issue. The decision to come to the market is entirely up to the stallholder. Unless there is a civil emergency the market will run rain, hail or shine. Please refer to our Facebook page on the morning of the market for an update if you are unsure.
Power for Stallholders
SWDC have installed a power outlet so we can have food and coffee stall holders.
Stall Holder Parking
There is free parking in the large car park on the corner of Hastwell and East Street (opposite Fresh choice car park). We would ask that all stall holders and locals use this car park to free up the limited parking on the Main Street for customers. The car park is located about 1 minute’s walk for the park so access to your vehicles will be easy.
There is an ANZ hole in the wall ATM located conveniently across the road from the Stella Bull Park for your customers to withdraw cash.
The Greytown Country MARKET will not be providing an EFTPOS machine on the day. We are certainly open to offering this if there is a need in the fullness of time.
We will have Greytown rubbish bags for sale for $1.00 each on the day and we will remove your rubbish for you as long as it is in a Greytown yellow rubbish bag.
The Greytown Public Library is a 2 minute walk from the Stella Bull Park if you require these facilities. They have a change table and disabled toilets. Also there are the public toilets on Main Street by the pedestrian crossing.
Dogs and Stella Bull Park
The Stella Bull Park is dog friendly if they are on a lead.
We will review shared applications on a case by case basis. Up to 2 businesses may share a site at an additional cost of $15 per month.
Each business must apply separately and provide photographs of their goods. Please indicate in your email who you are applying with.
