Stallholder Information

  • Only pre-approved stallholders can attend the markets
  • To gain product approval please email photos and a description of your product.  Please include as much information as possible including where the product is made and by whom.
  • To ensure diversity of the markets we do not always approve products that are already being sold at the markets or that are imported.
  • Once your product is approved and all application forms completed, bookings can be made online via the stallholder login or by calling the market office.
  • Stallholders must attend the markets within one month of gaining approval.
  • If Stallholders stop attending for more than one month they must seek re-approval of their product before they can attend again.
  • All bookings must be pre-paid.
  • Pre-bookings close at 10 am on the Friday before each market unless sold out sooner.
  • If approved stallholders have not pre-booked they can still attend the market by signing on at the market office between 7 and 7-30am.  We cannot guarantee that a stall site will be available for non-pre-booked stalls.
  • The base prebooked fee for an art and craft stall is $68 – from july 1st 2022 (includes GST), other fees apply for additional services/stalls.
  • All stalls must have both public and product liability insurance cover of $20 million each.  If stallholders do not have their own insurance, they can come under the market’s policy for a fee of $8 per market.  Not all products are able to be covered by the market’s policy.
  • Pre-booked stalls will be emailed a stall number and sitemap on Friday afternoon prior to the market.
  • Pre-booked stallholders must arrive between 6 and 7 am.  Stallholders are not allowed to set up before 6 am and if nothing is on their site at 7 am we assume they are not coming and will reallocate the site.
  • Stallholders are required to bring everything they need to set up their stall, display goods, and provide shade if needed.  This includes ropes and weights, everything must be secured against the wind as soon as it is erected.  Please unload and set up quietly to minimise noise for our neighbors.
  • Full copies of the rules and regulations which must be read and adhered to before attending are available at the office and will be emailed with the application forms.

 

With consideration of state laws regarding the use of single-use plastic bags, the new single-use plastics ban, and the City of Gold Coast’s policies on event waste and collection, the Markets have transitioned into this new policy from September 1st, 2021

All Stallholders

 All stalls are required to leave their site clean as they found it as per existing market rules and Regulation’s policy.

In addition, you are required to take any waste home (or to a suitable offsite recycling station) that is generated by the conducting of business by a market stall (this means any commercial or personal waste generated by you during the course of business activities within the park)

This includes all boxes, bags, and coat hangers, craft scraps.

Any broken chairs tents/marquees and equipment must be removed from the site.

Mirrors and glass must also be carefully removed (management informed of the breakage so we can make sure the area is clear of glass fragments) 

  • The on-site council bins are for public non-commercial waste only.
  • All Stallholders found disposing of market stall waste in these bins will be cautioned in the first instance (referred to this policy), then suspended if found reoffending.
  • We do sort these onsite bins and are working with the council to reduce waste and bin overflow to avoid litter and ocean contamination. Your stall sites are marked so please remember to check your site is clean before you leave.
  • Cigarette butts, price tags, and broken zip ties are litter and must be taken with you. (We do check and clean the site at the end of the day and know who has left rubbish, these stalls will be cautioned then suspended as above)
  • Single-use plastic bags are banned as per the Waste Reduction and Recycling Amendment Act 2017

Plastic Bag Ban – QLD | National Retail Association

  • Single-use plastic items are banned as per the Waste Reduction and Recycling (plastic Items) Amendment Act 2021

https://www.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0034/169981/single-use-plastics-ban-factsheet.pdf

Pre-Packaged Food stalls (In addition to the ‘all stallholders’ requirements)

Compostable Biodegradable Plastics must conform to either Australian Standards: AS 4736-2006 or AS 5810-2010

  • Stallholders are required to sell their products in recyclable or compostable containers i.e., glass jars, recyclable plastic containers, or compostable containers or wrapping.
  • All approved single-use food sampling should use compostable or recyclable sampling utensils.

Fresh Produce stalls (In addition to the ‘all stallholders’ requirements)

  • Fresh product stalls are encouraged to offer paper bags for customers to put their produce in rather

than plastic bags (please familiarize yourself with the single-use packaging bag legislation)

  • Plastic netting for fruit and vegetables is no longer allowed. Unless once the customer has chosen their produce, you transfer it into either a paper bag or their own reusable bag and you keep and reuse the netting.  Although plastic netting is made from recyclable plastics it is not accepted in Gold Coast Council recycling bins at this time.

Food for Consumption Stalls (In addition to the ‘all stallholders’ requirements)

  • All Food for Consumption stalls are required to serve food/drink in compostable or reusable products.
  • All Food for Consumption stalls are required to take all production waste home and are at no time to dispose or leave production waste in the market or Council supplied bins.
  • All Food for consumption stalls are required to train their staff so they can educate customers of the products being used and how they can dispose of the waste correctly with regards to recycling, composting or landfill.

 

Product Alternative
Plates, bowls, and clamshells Sugarcane based with no plastic lining
Cups Paper with corn-based lining or Compostable Plastic (corn-based)
Utensils (Plastic now banned) Wooden or Compostable plastic (corn-based) and labeled compostable
Plastic straws (now banned) Paper straws, offer re-useable bamboo or stainless-steel straws for sale
Single-use packaging for condiments i.e.individual tomato/soy sauce packets Sauce dispenser on the counter for customers to ask for serve (COVID Safe Plan)
Polystyrene packaging (now banned) Paper, sugarcane, palm leaf

Stallholders are encouraged to offer discounts to customers that reuse their own mugs, plates, and cutlery

Considering the continuing efforts of the nation and the world to turn the tide on the mountains of un biodegradable and plastic waste being generated every day, the changing regulatory environment and environmental best practice all stallholders will be required to minimize product packaging and use compostable packaging as per this policy

This policy is added to your acceptance of terms through your signed Stallholder Agreement.  Any Stallholder that does not wish to comply with this policy may at the written request of the stallholder be terminated as an approved stallholder of the Art and Craft on the Coast Markets

Market Management supports the current position that we cannot continue as business and waste as usual and thank all stallholders in advance for their participation and innovation in reducing waste locally through our business practices for the sake of the planet’s resources and all our future.

The Stallholder Parking Policy 2021 improves and clarifies the Markets Rules and Regulations regarding the re parking of Stallholder vehicles while attending the markets. During 2020 there were a number of parking issues and structural changes identified at all 3 market locations. In response we have conducted a parking review with consultation of stallholders and the City. We have implemented this new policy for all attending Stallholders (including staff of Stallholders) and Market staff. This policy sets out to amend and supersede existing Rules and regulations and by doing so improve loading, unloading and customer attendance at the markets. Also providing enhanced guidelines for fair and equitable access for all stallholders to load equipment at each market location.

 

Extract from existing rules and regulations that all stallholders have already signed and agreed to in their application/permit to attend markets operated by Art and Craft on the Coast.
