SECURITY BOND (via Credit Card System)

All stallholders are required to register their Credit Card details as a security bond of $1000. The bond will only be withdrawn from that Credit Card to repair any damage caused directly by the stallholder. e.g. damage to trees, taps, sprinklers, marquees etc,

Likewise, if there is any breach of the contract, such as neglecting to properly dispose of waste, this bond may be used for compensation.

If the damage bill exceeds $1000 the stallholder will be sent an additional invoice. If the vendor meets all contract specifications and there is no damage, funds will not be deducted.



No vehicles, trailers or cool-rooms will be allowed to remain at the rear of the stall site as vendors don't have a back of house.
