Casual Stallholders 2017-12-15T17:58:11+00:00

Whether it’s your first foray into running a market stall, or you’re a seasoned market goer who loves the freedom holding a casual stall brings, Blacktown Markets is the place for you!

Blacktown Markets is a great place for you to dip your toe in the water of selling your own wares without many of the negatives that come with running a pop-up shop or a proper store. And you can enjoy the flexibility as a casual stallholder of only working the Sundays you want.

At Blacktown Markets, we know the key to having a successful market is encouraging first time and casual stallholders to participate in all the fun with the minimum of fuss. In fact, 50% of our market is made up of eager casual stall holders just like you.
