Information about our 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 feel.

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.

Please make sure all rubbish from your stall area is disposed of before you leave or is taken with you. We wish to keep cleaning costs to a minimum therefore keeping stall prices down.

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.

Please arrive on the premises at 7.30am for a prompt 9.00am start. You can unload in the carpark closest to the market area. Access is level for those who have trolleys. You must park your vehicle away from the closest carparks to the venue to ensure that there is plenty of parking for customers and visitors.

Please do not close your stall before 1pm, you must trade until the completion of the market.This is a requirement of Mummy Tree Markets. Please pack up and leave as close to 2pm as possible.

Smoking is not permitted at any of our Markets.

About Our Markets

We provide a stylish, inspired and unique marketplace to showcase a diverse range of quality merchandise as part of a relaxed and supportive community. There are opportunities to network with other businesses and share knowledge with like minded colleagues who can relate to the benefits of running a small or home based business.
We compliment our marketplace with our dedicated online presence through facebook, instagram and other social media as well as valuable real life promotion. Our aim is to increase exposure for your business. We have seen many businesses grow and thrive since starting at our markets.

The Mummy Tree Markets aim to offer quality, unique merchandise at affordable prices and offer stallholders a desirable venue to showcase their wares.

Selection Process

Our markets do not showcase mass produced or second hand products or products which are easily found in shops. Products/services must be of a high quality and there has to be a uniqueness to what is showcased. We prefer handmade and Australian made but we are not limited to this. We will also look at some vintage lines and anything not mass produced which has a point of difference and which we believe will enhance our Market.
If you are unsure if your range meets out criteria, please contact us to discuss it.
We reserve the right not to accept retailers who do not meet our criteria or who we feel are not suitable for the demographic we are catering for.

It is essential all products and services meet Australian Government Standards before applying to attend our markets as we take no responsibility in regards to your compliance.

Products and services must cater for pregnancy, babies, children, teens and families in general to be considered. We will also have stall holder opportunities for Food Retailers at some of our Markets.  Food stalls are not permitted at some of our markets. Please contact us if you are a food stall holder before applying. Food stalls are not permitted at Sanctuary Cove markets.

We try and select retailers to ensure we have as much variety as is possible.We would like each of our retailers to have a point-of-difference to what is available elsewhere. We will look for a depth of product/service range, style, uniqueness, quality and realistic pricing when selecting retailers.

If your application is unsuccessful and you feel you do meet our guidelines please do not take it personally and please do not be put off applying again. It may be that we have other businesses already booked which offer a very similar product.

It is in the interest of all our retailers that we do not have too many of the same type of stalls at our Markets in order to offer enough variety. This helps provide a positive market experience for everyone including our customers. We have kept our stallholder prices as low as is possible however we still wish to ensure the standard of the market remains high and that we can also promote our markets effectively.

All applications for all our Markets will be open online. You can choose to apply for one or multiple markets. Discounts apply to multiple bookings. (see Stall Sizes/Pricing & Application Process)

Payment must be made at the time of applying for your application to be considered. If unsuccessful you will be fully refunded. Once approved and booked there will be no refunds for cancellation or bad weather. (See Cancellation)

Whilst we have a strict selection criteria it will still be a case of first in first approved.
