Soliciting (roaming) is not permitted unless a blanket stall has been purchased via management.
Please use common sense when choosing stall size vs back of house requirements. Eg 6m caravan requires a 6 m frontage.
Management does not guarantee you can camp directly behind your stall but we endeavor to ensure this happens where possible.
In many cases vendors will need to share back of house with neighbors. Please be prepared for this and cooperate accordingly.
