Becoming a stallholder


As Tasmania's premier outdoor market, Salamanca Market has built its reputation on the ethos of locally made and sourced, high quality and unique products - something for everyone.  Salamanca Market attracts a loyal local customer base and boasts a high visitation by overseas, interstate and regional visitors seeking a truly Tasmanian experience.

If you want to run a stall at Salamanca Market, there are two options:

  1. Licenced stallholder: a five-year licence to trade that can be renewed.
  2. Casual stallholder:  the application process to become a casual stallholder occurs every two years and if successful, a casual stallholder may trade, however, is not guaranteed a site every Saturday.

Please be aware that you will need to gain pre-approval for your products.

Licenced stallholders

A licenced stallholder is a business that has a stall at the market every week of the year and holds a licence agreement issued by the City of Hobart, the operator of the market. The licence defines the site number, location, period of tenure, agreed product lines, fees and general terms and conditions. These licences are renewed every five years.

How do I become a licenced stallholder?

Licences are generally transferred upon the private sale of the stallholder's site business. The next step is to complete a product line pre-approval form however we suggest that you call our office first on 6238 2430 to have an initial conversation about your proposed product line before you submit the product line pre-approval form.  You need to submit this form regardless if you intend to sell the same product line that is currently approved for that site or a different product line. It is necessary that you gain pre-approval for your products prior to a transfer of licence.

Casual stallholders

A casual stallholder holds an agreement issued by the City of Hobart, the operator of the market and is able to book a site at the market throughout the year but is not necessarily guaranteed a site every week.

How do I become a casual stallholder?

The application process to become a casual stallholder occurs every two years and stallholders making products in Tasmania by hand are always highly valued. The next application process is due in April 2019.

Applications are not accepted at any other time however you can request to be added to the casual stallholder expression of interest register by completing the casual stallholder expression of interest form. This will ensure you receive email notification each time an application round opens. Sorry, we cannot take stallholders on an ad hoc basis.

The casual stallholder site fee is currently $84.53 per market day (GST, marketing levy and public liability insurance included) plus an additional fee if a table is required.
