WHAT COMES WITH A STALL?
A Harborne Market stall is a good quality traditional 10’ by 10’ stall, as well as 10′ by 4′ counter board and overhead canopy. The stalls include a white back sheet (on days with high winds these may need to be left off for safety reasons).
Traders must bring their own table coverings. Unfortunately the market can not provide a power source for traders at this time.
You can see images of our stalls in action on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
WHAT IF I NEED EXTRA PROTECTION?
The Market can provide a limited number of gazebo style stalls but there is an extra cost for this and it may be dependant on weather (they can’t be used in windy weather).
CAN I BRING MY OWN STALL SET UP?
Yes and by doing so you can save on your pitch fee. Please note however that we will have to approve the set up and ensure it meets safety standards. If you’re interested in this option, let us know and we will try to accommodate you.

I AM ATTENDING THE MARKET, WHAT TIME DO I NEED TO ARRIVE AND WHAT TIME DO I PACK UP?
You can arrive at the market from 8:30am to start setting up.
The earlier you arrive the more likely you will be able to get close to your stall to unload. When you arrive please unpack your stock as quickly as possible and then park your car before you set up your display. For public safety, and fairness to all traders, all vehicles must be off the site by 9:30am.
Traders have to be ready to trade for the market start time of 10am. The market finishes at 3pm. Traders must therefore not pack up and leave before 3pm as clearing and empty stalls impacts the feel of the market for everyone else.
