(A stallholder is considered permanent if their market attendance is on a weekly basis.)
Stallholders must advise market management if they are unable to attend for any reason (illness, personal reasons, etc.). This must be done as early as possible, to allow alternate arrangements to be made. Phone call preferred, but email or sms will suffice.
4. WEATHER CALL
Based on advice from Ku-ring-gai Council, we will advise all stallholders if the park is closed due to bad weather by 2pm the day prior to market day; in these cases the market will temporarily re-locate to the Turramurra Memorial Park across the road.
We proceed in all weather, except extreme or dangerous conditions. Decision to cancel the market is based on safety only, not on trading opportunity. If the market is cancelled, all stalls will be ‘rolled over’ to the next week. No refunds are offered. Cancellation and other announcements will be made via the closed Faceook group “Turra Produce Chat” and posted on Facebook, Instagram and www.turraproduce.com.au
It is your responsibility to check all these sources.

We will allocate your stall based on the best layout for the market as a whole. If you are not happy with your stall location, please advise in writing and we will do our best to accommodate you the next market.
Your space is not transferrable – i.e.: you cannot (a) swap locations with another stallholder (b) give your stall to another stallholder to run if you can’t make it without prior advice to market operator (c) sub-let or share your stall space with another business/vendor.

Stalls must be ready to trade at 8 a.m. and not commence packing up until 1 p.m. Access for all stallholders is through the Karuah Road gates ONLY. As the market is in a residential area, please keep noise to a minimum.
Bump In is from 6 a.m. on the morning of the market, those stallholders who require shade, and have appropriately allocated stalls, may keep their cars directly behind their stalls provided they arrive early enough to enable them to park there without inconveniencing other stallholders and/or market visitors.
ALL other vehicles MUST be taken off the Oval by 7:45 a.m. – parking is available along Turramurra Avenue. Stallholders arriving after 7:30 a.m. will need to park on the street & carry their equipment/products onto the oval.
Bump Out is STRICTLY from 1 p.m. onwards. Stallholders are required to be in their stalls until the market ends at 1 p.m. Exceptions will be made on prior discussion only. Trade must only be carried out within the confines of your stall. You are not permitted to solicit business outside of your area at any time.
You are expected to maintain trade on your stall until the close of market. If you choose to pack up before then, we reserve the right to refuse your application for future markets.

9. OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY ** PRIORITY **
Marquees – If you are using a marquee, it is your responsibility to provide heavy weights for all 4 corners of your marquee, sufficient to secure it under windy conditions. This is an OH&S requirement and if you do not have the suitable weights, you will be asked to source them immediately or take down your marquee.
Signage – All signage must be within the confines of your stall, or at management’s discretion, in other allocated promotion areas.
Food stalls – ALL FOOD STALLS MUST CARRY A WORKING FIRE EXTINGUISHER. Any hot oil, water or fluids, grills, or other electrical/gas equipment that heats, MUST be turned off and allowed to cool BEFORE any dismantling of your marquee commences. Please consider your timing well in advance of the close of business.
Market Management will be checking these regulations throughout the market.
Please also consider the following documentation and safety guidelines for operating a temporary food stall: http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/_Documents/retail/temp_events_guideline.pdf
Smoking – We are are family market. Smoking at the market is strictly prohibited – if you need to smoke please make sure you do so OUTSIDE the park boundaries and away from our visitors and other stallholders.
All rubbish must be placed in the bins provided or taken away with you. Please take away with you, all large packaging boxes as this will clog the bins and is not fair to other stallholders or the general public who utilise the park.
Stallholder access from 6 a.m. There is no parking on site (except for vans and trailers who have reserved space). Drop off/pick up access is provided through the Karuah Road gates which are unlocked at 6 a.m. and will be unlocked again after 1 p.m. This is a safety requirement and no allowances will be made. Stallholder parking is in adjoining streets. Do NOT use the angled parking on Karuah Road – this is a council requirement.

Photos and videos may be taken at each market of stallholders, products and visitors. These are used for promotional purposes only and never sold to a third party.
