MARKETS FAQ's

Frequently asked questions

How much are pitches?


Our 2021 'In Person' markets are £45 for a day or £80 for the whole weekend for markets between July and October.
Christmas Markets are £50 for a day or £90 for the whole weekend for markets between November and December.




Where are the Pop Ups and what times are they?


Our 2021 Pop Ups are going to be held from 11am-4pm at The Stade Hall, Hastings Seafront, Hastings Old Town, TN34 3DW. The Stade Hall is perfectly located on the seafront in Hastings Old Town opposite the brilliant Hastings Contemporary Art Gallery. We started our markets there in 2019 and are really excited to be bringing them back to this great location! You can find the full list of dates here on our website!




What time can I set up from?


You can arrive at The Stade Hall to set up any time from 9.30am for each Pop Up. Please do not pack up until 4pm!




How do I apply?


All our markets are created and so if we have space and there are no similar stalls then we will allocate you a space. You can find the application here and if you sign up to our mailing list here as well we can keep you updated with all new dates and applications! Please be aware that these markets are for makers, creatives and small businesses that compliment this such as vintage and food stalls.




How do I pay?


Payment must be made by BACS by the date on on your invoice to secure your space. The date is usually 48 hours from booking.




Are tables and chairs provided?


Yes we provide both for you. Our tables measure approx 6x2ft or we have a couple of smaller options. You are welcome to bring your own table, rails or any other set up but please be aware it has to fit within the same space of 6x3ft.




What else do I need?


We would suggest bringing a card reader as well as your cash float so that you can take both types of payments. Particulary in these times customers are keen to be paying by card so a card reader would be beneficial. You'll also need to make sure you have appropriate Public Liability insurance and if you are a food seller you will also need your food hygiene certificate.




What sort of footfall do you get?


Our markets are well attended and supported but we don't quote our footfall. All events can vary depending on external factors including weather, however we work really hard to advertise each and every event to make it successful for you. They're all promoted online, on social media, in local publications and with flyers, posters and signs.




Do I need insurance?


Yes you will need Public Liability Insurance and will need to provide a copy of this if we accept your application.




Are bookings refundable or transferable?


Bookings are not refundable or transferable unless we cancel them due to COVID, so please make sure you are aware of this when booking our markets.




Is there any parking nearby?


Yes there are a few pay and display car parks nearby in the Old Town; Rock-a-Nore car park, Pelham Place car park and The Bourne car park which are around £7.80 for 10 hours.
On Sunday's you can also park in the new town Priory Meadow carpark for £1 all day and there is free parking further up Old London Road, Harold Road and the surrounding roads which is a 15-20 minute walk back down to the seafront.
