As you all know, during the 11 years this market has been running, I’ve always been all about LOCAL and HANDMADE. I am fiercely supportive of both!
And in all this time, I’ve never had to make rules regarding where stallholders actually come from. So while it’s flattering the market is gaining attention from further afield, I am still very conscious to stick to the reasons I started the Made with Love markets in the first place.
Therefore, strong preference will be given to local stallholders (Macleay, Coffs and Clarence Coasts, as well as parts of the Northern Tablelands).
Non-local stallholders are still encouraged to apply, but applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Products will need to be unique and different to anything on offer by a local stallholder to be considered.
