Epic Booking Fails

The top 3 mistakes people make when booking on line for a Sunday Market Stall:

  1. Turning up for the wrong date. We often get stallholders who mix up their dates and are unable to be placed in a full market. It’s a long ride home at 7am with a car full of unsold goods.
  2. Not printing or taking note of their stall number. Some stallholders waste valuable setup time because they arrive at the market and have no idea whatsoever what stall number they have chosen to book. Setup is very busy and it may be very difficult for our volunteers to work out a stallholder’s allocation.
  3. Not checking the terms and conditions. Stallholders have been told to pack up their prohibited goods, such as food and cut flowers even before the market has opened. Please check all the terms and conditions that you agree to.

Market Manager’s report for Dec 14th

Beautiful morning, sold out market, but due to a few no shows, and some creative stall arrangements, all were accomodated.

Lots of quality stalls to be seen and brisk trading done by many. Our Charity stall this week, Bentleigh West cook book project took in about $350 in sales for their cause.image

Gate donations today totalled some $1200, which as pledged will go toward Philippines Tyhoon Releif.

A few Stallholders decided to leave before 12 noon closing time. Please note that this is strictly contrary to our procedures T&C’s, and dangerous for pedestrians still in the market area. Stallholders: please be respectful of of the T&C’s and pedestrian safety.

For next Sunday morning, we have 6 stalls available for those waiting in the morning for last minute stall bookings.

Market Stall Booking Sold Out

Bentleigh Sunday Market Stall hire is Now SOLD OUT for This Sunday, Nov 9th.

We recently had an email enquiry that wanted an explanation as to why they had such a limited choice of stall bookings every time they tried to book. The short answer is YOU NEED TO BOOK EARLY!

We have at least 75 casual stalls available each week. Sunday Market Stall Bookings are open 4 weeks in advance. If you decide to have a stall 3 days before in peak season, your choices of finding a preferred stall location will be like finding a good theatre seat 5 minutes before the movie starts.

This situation is not as pronounced as our friends at the Camberwell Sunday Market experience for their stall bookings. The Rotary Sunday Market at Camberwell is often booked out many weeks in advance. Some would be stallholders are know to have gone on-lne in the wee hours of the morning waiting for the Camberwell market stall booking to open.

Bentleigh Sunday Market stall hire bookings are not quite at that situation. Stall bookings are available up to 6 weeks in advance, and currently not experiencing sell-outs until a few days before the Sunday Market starts.

On a good day, Bentleigh Sunday Market will get almost 3,000 visitors, so it is good value for any potential stallholder.

Lost & Found

We often get items handed in to our booking office on Sunday. Sometimes they are personal items like keys, wallets, and phones. Other times, we get purchases that were left at the stall or the buyer did not return to pick them up.

On this page we will advertise lost and found items.

If you have lost something at our market and see it advertised here please contact us.
