Information about the Hamilton Market

Our market will be held within the grounds and hall of St Augustine’s Church, 56 Racecourse Road, Hamilton. This easily accessible location has a hall and an outdoor grassed area. There will be an option of either indoor or outdoor stallholder spaces.

This is a boutique family style market with all  stalls being BYO marquee or indoor tables.

The outdoor marquees must be good quality and  3m x3m. The allocated indoor space is 3m x1.5m.

You can only trade with us if you have a 3m x 3m quality pop-up marquee (oz-trail or equivalent) as it is important that we maintain a cohesive look to ensure our market stalls fit with our boutique theme.

All  tables require a full length cover so any items stored underneath are not visible. It is imperative that your stall is presented attractively to highlight your products as this will encourage buyers.

Aim for a full but not overcrowded stall. Add a personal touch and try for stylish and welcoming setup. This is very important for the overall quality feel of our market.

Our Hamilton markets will be daytime markets on Saturday,  from 9am to 1pm.

Please note:  For the outdoor section of the market please ensure all BYO marquees and products are secured  in case of bad weather. All marquees must use weights at all our markets.  Securing marquees and products is the stallholder’s full responsibility.
