Acceptance and non-acceptance of applications will be at the sole discretion of the Untold Events Co curation committee. Please understand that your application is reviewed on many levels including the quality and price-point of your products, where and how your products are created, the appearance of your stall display, how unique your products are and most importantly, consideration for the overall visitor experience.
Stall locations are at the discretion of the Untold Events Co curation committee.
All stallholders (excluding hot food, coffee, entertainment and massage stallholders) are provided with public liability insurance by the policy owned by the Untold Events Co. This policy provides indemnity to the amount of $20 million for any one occurrence. If a claim is made, an excess of $1,000 per claim is payable by the stallholder claimant.
Please note that public liability insurance does not include loss or damage to your own personal property, products, stock and/or equipment that you may have at or near your stall. Please ensure you have adequate insurance for the aforementioned as this is not the responsibility of the Untold Events Co.
All hot food, coffee, entertainment and massage stallholders are required to provide their own public liability insurance policy (with indemnity to at least $10 million for any one occurrence) and a copy of a current policy must be provided to the Untold Events Co on application. If such a policy is not provided on application, the application will be deemed to be incomplete. Should a policy expire prior to an Untold Events Co market, it will be the stallholder’s responsibility to provide a copy of the renewal to the Untold Events Co. Without this, the stallholder will be unable to trade (regardless of any fees paid) at any Untold Events Co market until such time as a current policy is provided.
There are three options for paying for your Untold Events Co. markets…
If market fees are not paid by the due dates on their invoice or credit card authorities are not provided, it will be assumed the stallholder no longer wishes to attend and their booking(s) will be re-allocated without notice to stallholders on our waitlist.
Please consider the markets / dates that you apply for carefully, as all market bookings confirmed by Untold Events Co are considered final. If you request to cancel any confirmed bookings at either the Emu Plains or Little Beauty markets, we reserve the right to withdraw or alter the offer of any / all of these bookings at either market.
Any changes to confirmed market bookings should be made in writing to Untold Events Co as soon as they are known by the stallholder. Any booking alterations made after the issue of an invoice (that require the invoice to be amended/cancelled) will be subject to a $20 administration fee.
No fee will be charged if written notice is provided prior to the issue of the relevant invoice.
To ensure a positive visitor experience at each of our markets, Untold Events Co strives to ensure that each available site is occupied. Cancellations provided with less than 48 hours notice (eg after 9am on the Thursday before a market opening at 9am on a Saturday) make this extremely challenging. Subsequently, stallholders who cancel providing less than 48 hours notice (or who fail to turn up on the day with no notice) on more than ONE occasion per season (October - April) will forfeit any future rights to participate at the events managed by the Untold Events Co regardless of any monies paid.
If provided with 14 days written notice of cancellation, Untold Events Co will re-assign any paid fees to cover the stallholder’s next unpaid booking. If no further bookings have been made and accepted, a full refund will be issued. No re-assignment of fees, and no refunds are available when less than 14 days written notice of cancellation is provided.
There are no refunds for season pass stallholders or cancelled markets due to extreme weather.
The Untold Events Co markets are all-weather events and stallholders must be prepared for adverse weather conditions. However, in the event of extreme weather conditions the market may not operate to ensure the safety of stallholders and market patrons. An email will be sent to the provided email address to announce the cancellation. It is also possible that the market may need to close early due to extreme weather conditions- if this is to occur, market staff will notify stallholders directly.
Please keep an eye on social media channels for up-to-date information prior to, and on market day.
Please note that no refunds to casual or season pass stallholders can be issued in the event of cancellations/reduced hours due to extreme weather conditions. The Untold Events Co will not be responsible for any loss or damage whatsoever in the event of cancellations/reduced hours due to extreme weather conditions. The Untold Events Co will not be responsible for any loss, damage or injury whatsoever due to adverse conditions.
The health and safety of the staff, stallholders and visitors is always paramount at the Untold Events Co. As such, government guidelines regarding COVID-19 and physical distancing, public gatherings and best-practice hygiene will be closely monitored and strictly adhered to at all markets. Should these requirements result in the cancellation or postponement of a market(s), any fees paid by stallholders will be credited towards future markets / bookings. No refunds are available in such a situation.
All products must be listed on your application form. The Untold Events Co reserves the right to ask you to remove any products that are not listed on your application. The stallholder is responsible for ensuring all products comply with relevant Australian safety and compliance standards and are fit for purpose.
It is the stallholders responsibility to obtain and pay any registration required to trade as a food/beverage stall.
Stallholders are also required to obtain a Statement of Trade (SoT) for every Untold Events Co market they attend- this can be done at www.streatrader.health.vic.gov.au. Copies of registration and a Statement of Trade (SoT) must be supplied to the Untold Events Co before trading.
Stallholders should also have all necessary documentation with them on the day. Food stallholders must comply with any local / state / federal health regulations and food acts. The Untold Events Co holds no responsibility for loss of trade if proper documentation is not held (this includes Section 40s to be able to trade on total fire ban days).
Stallholders selling alcohol must supply the Untold Events Co with copies of their liquor license prior to market days. Failure to comply with council standards and regulations may result in an immediate closure of a stall.
Stallholder instructions with details of bump-in and bump-out will be emailed to each stallholder 2 days prior to a market.
