Southey's Vines, 186 Main Rd, Somerset West
At the Country Craft Market, we welcome applications and always look forward to including new crafts into our product offering. In order to maintain a high standard and a good variety of products, there is a selection process that applies to all crafters wishing to join us.
Applicants are required to attend a selection market and trade in a section of the market set aside for selection purposes. A selection committee of 6 to 8 longstanding market members will visit the applicants' stalls during the morning.
The Country Craft Market is a market for handcrafts only. It is required that the crafters concerned sell only what they produce themselves.
No agents or selling on behalf of other crafters is permitted.
Mass produced items are not permitted.
Food is provided at the market and no additional foodstuffs can be considered at this stage.
Depending on demand, there will be several selection opportunities during the summer market season. If you would like to attend and trade at a selection market, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing what you make. Remember to include your telephone and/or mobile numbers and add two or three photos if you can. Also include a website address or your craft Facebook Page name if applicable. You will then be sent details about the next available selection dates.
A stall fee of R160 per market is payable in advance for the selection days and also for market days, once selected.
Stall space of at least 3m x 3m is provided but most stalls have room to extend towards the back.
It is an outdoor market and the crafters are responsible for their own hardware such as gazebos / umbrellas or other weather-proofing as well as chairs, tables, rails, displays etc.
Electricity can be supplied at an additional fee of R5 per market.
The selected applicants will be appointed as casual members and their status will be reviewed as and when permanent membership positions become available. Casual members are allocated roughly half the available dates in a season and these are booked and paid for in advance. Casuals are then also invited to attend additional market dates as stalls become available during the season.
