What time do I need to be there?

Do I need Public Liability Insurance?
Yes. You will need public liability insurance to cover your market stall. The coverage needs to be a minimum of $10 000 000.
I have a food stall. Is there anything special I need to know?
Yes. Any person selling food onsite will need to have all relevant Food Authorities and council permits as required under state and local laws. Please contact the NSW Food Authority and Port Stephens Council for full requirements on obtaining any relevant Temporary Food Permits for the area.
Please note: Application for a position at Sacred Tree Markets does not guarantee acceptance and we have quite an extensive waiting list for food related stalls. Please wait for confirmation of acceptance before applying for a PSC Temporary Food Permit specifically to trade at Sacred Tree Markets.
What do I need to bring?
You will require a white marquee to trade as well as suitable weights (80kg). Unfortunately due to underground irrigation you are unable to peg on site in Nelson Bay.
During the twilight markets you will also need to think about lighting you products in your stall after dusk. Your lighting will need to be either solar or battery operated as powered sites are unavailable for this purpose.
Do you hire equipment?
We have a small number of white marquees available for casual hire. Please contact us for information.
Sacred Tree Markets are environmentally conscious event. How may this affect me?
We are committed to creating an environmentally sustainable event.
We ask all stallholders to provide environmentally friendly packaging alternatives. The use of plastic bags, styrofoam, polystyrene, plastic cutlery as well as any other form of non-biodegradable packaging is being phased out as we become more environmentally conscious. Compostable packaging is encouraged.
