WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE
A STALLHOLDER?

Glebe Markets is one of the most well establish and longest running markets in Sydney. It is situated in Glebe and is very much an inner city market in style. It is a vibrant, lively place, where stallholders can sell a wide range of products.

Its inner city location, close to the CBD, ensures a steady stream of customers. There is a growing interest in distinctive, innovative and creative designs, particularly in clothing and accessories. It is also a great place to trial a new product and establish a small business.

Book your Glebe Markets stall online using our online form.

How do I book a Casual Stall?

There are two types of Casual Stalls:

Pre-paid online bookings:

Online bookings can be done through this website and the stall chosen and paid for in one simple process (see above).

Using the online booking system you can select a date, look and select a stall from our bookings map and finally pay for it. After that you simply need to arrive and go straight to your stall on the day to set up.

You can book for any available dates listed when you go into the bookings area.

On line booking gives a guaranteed stall for the day you book. On the day of your booking you must be in your stall by 9am otherwise we will assume you are not coming and you will forfeit your stall.

Please be aware that once you have made a paid booking there is no refund or transfer for change of mind. If you are not sure about being able to come on a particular date we suggest you use the Stand-by method.

Stand-by stalls:

This method proves to be very reliable however officially it doesn’t offer the 100% guarantee that pre-paying online does. However it does still offer a strong likelihood of getting a stall on the day. No booking is necessary for this method you simply arrive and line up.

When: Line up 6.30am

Where: Derby Place laneway near the “no smoking”, “no dogs”sign. Line up on the footpath against the school fence.

Did my booking go through?

If you haven’t paid or if you haven’t received a receipt then you haven’t got a booking.

Check this information below to see if you can find the answer to your problem.

The booking system has an inbuilt safety mechanism that will hold the stall for 15 minutes while it waits for the bank to complete the transaction. If it doesn’t receive the money in 15 minutes then it will cancel the booking.

You should check your bank account to see if money has come out or not.

Screen freezes and internet dropping out are a common problem and unfortunately leave a lot of confusion. If you haven’t paid then definitely go ahead and make another booking as the first attempt will have been unsuccessful.

Another area where people have a problem is in the “Category” choice. You must choose a category or it will only send us an email inquiry but will not make a booking.

A third problem that people encounter is that someone else is looking at the same stall and one person just gets in before the other person.

Speed of internet connection may be the reason you can not book. The bank security will prevent you from getting into the bank if your internet is slow. If you are using wi-fi then this is common. Try using your phone data or a computer connected to the internet rather than wi-fi.

Another way to check is to go back into the booking system (if it has been more than 15 mins since you originally tried to book) go through the booking as if you were booking a stall and see if your name is on the map or not.

If you have waited the 15 mins and gone back into the system to check if your name is still in the stall or not and found that your name is no longer there then you don’t have a booking and you should go ahead and make another booking.

What can I do if the online bookings are full? Stand-by instructions.

Demand can be high and the week you choose may be booked out online.

If so, you can still get a stall by arriving early and lining up for a Stand-by stall.

No booking is required and this is available every Saturday. This method provides stalls for those who don’t know to book online or tried to book and it was booked out. It is also excellent if you are unsure if you can commit to a particular date. 

It proves to be extremely reliable as we haven’t turned anyone away for more than 12 months.

Arrive and line up before 6.30am in Derby place lane way on the footpath along the school fence. If you look at our market map it says “Stand-by Queue” on the footpath in Derby Place laneway.

At 6.30am David will come and take your names on the Stand-by list.

He will instruct you on what time to come back. It in normally 9am  so you will have time to go and have some breakfast or a coffee.

On returning the group will be taken by the staff and offered any available stalls. When you get a stall you pay for it then. The person at the front of the queue will be offered a stall first and then we will work through the list in order.

Even if it is booked out online, extra spaces become available and people will fail to come for Stand-by.

The prices are the same as the casual prices.

The market operates every Saturday. It does not close. In wet weather the market still operates. Often overcast days fine up to become beautiful and stallholders say these sort of days repeatedly give a good turnover of trade. Likewise, Sydney weather varies from suburb to suburb and often when it is foul on the coast it is fine at Glebe.
