What happens in the cooler months?
At Coorparoo Square during July and August, we close off the outdoor stalls on the lawn and down Myer Lane, due to cool/ strong winds. These larger marquee stalls reopen again in September. We have a variety of spaces available indoors such as, 2.5mx2.5m (limited spaces), 2.5mx1m, 2.5mx1.5 etc. 

How do the markets work at The Lanes?

The Market Folk x The Lanes Fortitude Valley is a cozy laneway market. Stalls line California, Bakery and Winn Lane. Live music, workshops and more connect the various locations. 

Stall sizes are strictly 2mx1m, umbrellas are provided by the venue as no marquees will fit. The stall sizes suit either a table with room for the seller to stand beside/behind or a rack or two etc. 

How do the markets work at Gasworks?

The Market Folk x Gasworks Plaza is a indoor/outdoor market. Majority of the stalls are featured in the Gasometer space outdoors (This is a heritage listed gas tank frame, converted into a park/ amphitheatre) and require a marquee. A short walk into the open air precinct will feature a handful of indoor/undercover stalls, the rack sale and workshops. The Gasometer is lined with leafy trees and up market restaurants. 

There are only a handful of indoor spaces available, if you are able to trade outdoors it is essential you note this on your application form to avoid missing out on these events.

Stall Categories

We have certain thresholds within stall categories to ensure we give our shoppers variety but also enable each creative the best chance to succeed on the day. This is at our discretion and depends on a number of factors such as the season (i.e Mother's Day, Christmas, Easter etc) as to how many of each stall we will have at any one event. Usually it is no more than 3, this does not cover specific products we look at the stall category as a whole.

Can I book month to month?
Yes you can book casually. You will see though on our application form we do ask for your availability in advance. This is because we take care to ensure our line ups are not saturated by particular products and if you do not book into a certain date your stall category may be full when you reach out to us down the track.

If you do book a stall in advance and cancel within 4 weeks of an event you are required to pay upfront for all future bookings.

 

When can I apply for a stall at The Market Folk?

Once you are approved unless your products and personal details change you do not have to reapply for each market - this is why we ask for your availability in advance, if you state a date then we book you in. We simply ask that you give 4+ weeks notice if you can no longer make the market.

Can I share a stall?
