Yes! Your stall site covers bringing a vehicle as part of your stall. For the safety of shoppers, all vehicles must remain parked between 7am and midday. Please wait for assistance from Blacktown Market staff before attempting to move your vehicle as we need to direct you.
I have a lot of stuff. Can someone help drop some of it off?
Yes. In addition to allowing you to have your car next to your market stall, you can also bring additional vehicles into the markets prior to 7am to drop off stock at no extra charge. However, any additional vehicles must park in the stallholder car park or depart the market site by 7am.
To move stock in and out of the market site during operating times, you are welcome to use a trolley.
