Terms and Conditions of Booking and Payment

  1. Booking fee: A stall fee is a booking fee to have a stall space reserved for the opportunity to trade at the Kiama Seaside Markets (markets). An extra fee of $5.00 per stall is applicable for the first 3 times the stall is booked, after this period the fee is waived. ALL Stallholders must have Product and Public Liability insurance. When insurance is renewed a copy must be given to the market managers, failures to do so will result in being unable to attend the markets until a copy of insurance is handed to the market manager. Stallholders are not to sell any knock off brand items, proof of receipt of purchase will be needed for any brand named goods.
  2. Cancellation by Stallholder: It is not the responsibility of the market, if for any reason, a stallholder having booked a stall space is unable to or does not wish to trade at any market for which a stall fee has been paid. There will be no transfers or refunds to stallholders if they do not turn up on the day or elect not to trade on the day. A full refund or transfer of a stall fee will ONLY be given if notification of cancellation is received no later than 24 hours prior to the particular market day for which a stall fee has been paid, failing which, the stall fee will be forfeited. There will be no refunds or transfers on stall fees unless the market is cancelled by the Kiama & District Business Chamber.

Advance payments may be made to the Market Managers on the day of the market in cash or by cheque payable to Kiama & District Business Chamber. A receipt will be issued at the time of payment.
