Stalls are expected to go rather quickly so we really do suggest to book and pay as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Sites are not confirmed or allocated until payment has been made.
We welcome all talented hand-crafters, local growers & specialty ‘foodies’ to apply for a stall! Click through to the application, and see our general information and fees section below. If anything isn’t clear, let us know by using our contact page.
See you at the fair!
Those very nice guys at Mana LIONS
All applicants are subject to a selection process. Once your application is received we will endeavor to reply within one month or sooner. Selection depends on product selection, quality of goods, and how your stall will contribute to the overall experience of the event. We also have a maximum quota on the amount of each type of stall, eg, jewellery, etc. Tell us as much as you can about why your stall would be a great addition to the overall market. All products must be made by the stall holder or family member, no imported goods allowed.
The date to save is Saturday 27th January 2018, and this time we are planning a rained-off date of Sunday 28th January 2018 in the event of really horrible weather. If the event cannot be held we will discuss with you the level of refund or using the funds as a deposit for your stall for the following year.
Your booking is for items you have applied to sell. If you wish to share a stall that is fine but both sellers must also apply for approval. This is so we can protect the quality of the items sold at our fair, and therefore the overall experience for attendees, and for you the sellers.
Food stalls require appropriate consents from the local district council (Porirua City Council), and it is the responsibility of the stall holder to obtain this.
You will need to bring your own:
-marquee (for standard & double sites only, not trestle sites)
-trestle table (limited tables are available to hire)
-heavy weights to hold your gazebo down in the event of heavy wind.
A great stall adds to the experience, the little things you do to give your space a professional look DO matter! Its a great idea to research stall presentation and selling tips and general stallholder etiquette.
Different stall sizes are available:
-Standard site, 3x3m – $80
-Double site, 6x3m – $160
-Mini (trestle-size 1.8m wide) site @ $50 however we require all stallholders to be sufficiently protected from the sun (eg sun umbrella). Please note this does NOT include room for a gazebo. If you will be bringing a gazebo you must book a standard 3 x 3 site or larger
– Trestle tables can be hired from us for $15 per table.
– Power connection can be made available at an additional charge of $10.
We appreciate some food sellers serve from their vehicles. We are asking that you give details on the size of your vehicle in your application to help us determine where you can be accommodated and the fee to be charged.
We will provide an Eftpos facility on the day supplying real cash, located at the Mana Lions base which will be signposted.
We have tested a mobile Eftpos machine on site that connects to the Vodafone network from much of the area where the stalls are situated. There is more information on the Stallholders page on where to obtain an Eftpos machine.
