Featuring a carefully curated lineup of stalls, The Market Folk reserves the right to reject applications based on suitability.
Email enquiries do not suffice as a reserved space.
Please make sure you have read our market regulations and FAQs prior to applying.
Sharing a stall:
Businesses may co share a stall space, however, individual applications must be submitted, both making note of sharing intensions.
Both businesses will need to be approved. Stall fees can not be shared, each and every business pays the same standard fee to attend our markets.
Coorparoo Square stall fees are $65 Standard
Gasworks Twilight - $70
Gasworks Saturday/ Sunday - $80
The Lanes Fortitude Valley Market - $40 Standard
As we partner with unique venues we offer a range of stall sizes - you are able to specify the stall size you are interested in on the application form. Please read our FAQs for full details. Coorparoo Square is indoor only from July - August, there are no 3x3m marquee spots available during these months.
Our turn around time is approximately 2-3 weeks as we make sure we throughly research each and every application. We look at the quality of your products, the appearance of your stall display and whether the stall matches our target market/ key customers. Only approved applications will get a response.
We don't believe in unnecessary paperwork! If you are accepted into our markets you do not have to reapply for each event. We ask that you give us your availability upfront, if you are approved and have given us a date, then we have booked you in for that market. Please do not write dates you are not fully intending on trading on. We do have a cancellation policy to encourage stall holder reliability.
Unfortunately, we can’t accept everyone’s application but that doesn’t mean we don’t like your products - it may just mean that we are currently full in the category you are applying in! Our aim is to provide a diverse market experience for everyone who wonders through The Market Folk events. Only approved applicants will hear back from us sorry!

The Market Folk is a very well organised market with friendly vibes and a great approach. Sarah who runs the market looks after her stall holders so well and makes you feel welcome and part of something special. Being part of Metre Market is unique because all of the stalls are carefully selected and of high caliber which makes for a wonderful likeminded community. We love being part of this market

The Market Folk is such a fantastic event and has been excellent for showcasing my homewares brand. It offers a diverse and thoughtful curation of handmade and unique products and is always fun to be a part of and very professionally organised. I am really looking forward to my next market!
Kathy, Meta Design Co
As a stallholder I’m looking to be involved in markets that are well promoted with a great mix of vendors, locations and customer bases. I also expect integrity of process and support for local economies. The Market Folk delivers all these attributes and more! Small scale, local and super friendly... The Market Folk does a smashing job of bringing talented artists and makers together for well organised and diverse events. I’m looking forward to being involved in more markets well into the future.
