Blacktown Markets provides limited space for casual stallholders and can not guarantee every casual stallholder will gain entry in to the market on the day. Booking a stall or securing yourself a place in the front of the queue is your best bet on a busy day.
Use your own judgement on the day. If the weather forecast has predicted a thunderstorm, yet there isn't a cloud in the sky, chances are the prediction was incorrect. Rest assured, if it does rain on the day, Blacktown Markets offers rain checks in the event of poor weather.
Spruik your goods! A little bit of charisma with a smile can go a long way in drawing shoppers to your stall. Mix it up though, just repeating the same thing over and over all day doesn't go down well with the neighbours.
Clean table cloths over your tables will make your stall more presentable and in turn, more attractive to shoppers.
If you place your items on tables and have cover from a marquee, this will not only make your stall more attractive to shoppers but also protect you and your goods from a lot of the elements. Tables and marquees are available for hire from Blacktown Markets.
You should base your float on how much your items cost. For example; if you're selling items which cost $1-$5, bring plenty of $2, $1 and 50c coins. If you're selling items which cost $5-$50, bring plenty of $5, $10 and $20 notes.
