The market will open to the public at 9am and close at 1pm. Please note that shopping amongst stallholders is NOT allowed before 9am, if any stall holder is found to be buying or selling before the market opens at 9am they may be asked to leave the hall. We generally have many of shoppers queuing and waiting in line to grab a bargain and it is unfair if trading has started before they have entered the market.

Stallholders must ensure the setup of items is done in a safe and secure manner to avoid accidents. When displaying boxes/tubs or items on the floor they must not spread into the aisle as this may cause congestion and tripping hazards.
