Can I hire tables and equipment from Paddy's Markets?

No. Paddy's Markets does not hire equipment any longer. Therefore it is important that you bring your own tables, tablecloth or sheet, banners, posters or marketing material, something to display your merchandise, a device to accept payment, and cash/spare change if you accept cash.

See the next question for details and recommendations.

What are the ten things to bring on the day?

Paddy's Markets provides the space and the many thousands of potential customers for our traders. You as a trader need to bring the equipment you need for your stall, such as:

1. Table
Bring a table or some form of fold-up furniture with which to mark out your stall area and display your products or marketing materials. These are available everywhere from large office furniture retailers, to hardware stores and online providers to name a few. Consider bringing at least two so can use one at the front of your store, and one at the back, or create an L-shape depending on the space you are nominated on the day.

2. Tablecloth or sheet 
Consider bringing a tablecloth or sheet as you'll want to hide the surface of the table you are selling on. Try to get a colour that best suits your brand. 

3. Banners, posters and other marketing materials 
You want to make sure you stand out in a cluttered market, as well as provide people with something to take home that will remind them of your brand and product offering, as well as your Instagram and Facebook pages, and/or website.

So bring all the banners, posters and marketing material you want. Teardrop banners and pull-up floor banners work really well.

You may also consider bringing a 3-metre-wide pull-up wall banner with your logo and website domain on it - or other brand-based imagery - on it to create a wall effect at the back of your stand. These are not cheap though (probably $250+), however, are an excellent option for serious businesses. Contact any printer or google "Pull-Up Wall banner" for supplier option.

All of this will help you generate attention, and visually improve the look of your stall, to improve the perception of your professionalism, and allow customers to understand immediately what you are about and what you are selling, encourage trust and credibility in your brand, and provide great opportunities to get images for social media.

4. Tape, Blu-Tak cable ties, scissors
Tape, cable ties and scissors are among some of the small accessories that you should bring with you whenever you are doing a stall. There will always be times when you wish to prop something up, cut something or stick an item somewhere, so having these to hand is always useful. 

5. Business cards / Flyers
The trusty business card is still one of the best ways to help promote your brand. Make sure it has your digital properties printed on it too - especially your website, Facebook and Instagram. This is great for online businesses to promote their online store, plus every now and then you might also meet someone who may be a great supply or distribution partner for your business too.

6. Product Displayers
Beyond just a sheet, you'll want to bring something upon which you can display your products. These are called Retail Displays. That might be stands, portable shelving, clothes hangers, and more.

Google retail displays, find what might be best to display your products, and then purchase the necessary items well ahead of the event so you can be sure - and comfortable setting them up. 

Remember that you only have a split second to catch the attention, so make the best of that moment with great marketing materials and displays.

7. A mirror
Don’t forget to bring a mirror if you're selling anything a customer will want to try on. This is so often forgotten, and it can become awkward when customers who wish to view themselves have to walk to another seller’s stand. 

8. A card reader 
Everyone carries cards nowadays, not everyone still carries cash. A card reader is therefore essential. They don't cost much and are really simple to set up. Simply google "Retail Card Reader", and you will be presented with many options including Square, SmartPay and many others. 

9. Cash and spare change 
With the above being said, this doesn’t mean that cash is dead. Many people still prefer to pay with cash. Therefore, consider bringing some so you can offer change from the start of the day,

10. Bring a chair
While we encourage you to stay standing and active for the entire market time (it looks better for your brand and ensures you keep selling), you or a colleague may get tired and need to sit for a moment. It can be a long day and become tiring if you're not used to being on your feet that long.

How do I choose my space?

We recommend that you visit the markets the week before you get started to get an idea of which space is available on your day and which space you would prefer.

Then, you need to turn up on the day and set up on that space (or nearby as may be the case) before the markets open.

If you have any problems, then see the staff on-site (security staff at the loading dock at Haymarket and our staff in the Market Office in Building D at Flemington).

Please be aware of other traders and understand that all spaces at the markets are effective. It's also a good idea to connect to other traders as you can work together to refer customers to each other and support each other's endeavours - and have a great day.

Can I book two spaces?

Yes. You can book two spaces either together or apart. If you are hoping to have them together, then given space restrictions on certain days, you will need to arrive earlier at the markets on the day to claim the space or connect with the market's staff for assistance.
