FAQ’s STALLHOLDERS 

1. DO I NEED TO SUPPLY MY OWN GAZEBO? 

Yes, you need to provide your own complete set up for your stall including gazebo 

2. DO YOU PROVIDE A TABLES AND CHAIRS FOR STALLHOLDERS? 

No, Aus Street Food does not provide tables or chairs for your stall. You will need to provide your own complete set up for your stall including tables and chairs. 

3. IS THERE POWER AVAILABLE? 

We do not offer powered stalls due to poor availability/access to power on site. If you require power in order to attend please include this information as part of your application. We have a limited availability to offer power in certain locations and do not wish to run into issues on market day with accepting stallholders who require power that we are then not able to accommodate. Please be aware that if you need power provided by Aus Street Food in order to run your stall you are less likely to be accepted to our events due to this issue. 

5. CAN I PEG MY GAZEBO INTO THE GRASS? 

Under no circumstances can items be pegged/stuck into the grass. This is a very strict requirement by most local councils in W.A and is part of our conditions in making use of the site. Your gazebo must be weighted with appropriate weights (proper weights that are strapped to your gazebo); items such as bricks placed on the base of your gazebo are not acceptable. This is a safety issue and should market staff find you non- compliant on market day you will be asked to take down your stall and leave our event. If you need advice on where to purchase appropriate gazebo weights please contact us.
