Prospective stallholders can contact the Market Manager at rotaryorangensw@gmail.com or by SMS to 0490 263 015

We maintain a database of stallholders who have indicated an interest in these markets.  They are contacted when bookings open for a market. To be added to this database click on the following link: Market Application Form

The general information sheet for these markets is: Stallholder Information Sheet

The fee per site at our markets during 2017 will be $40 plus $6 for public liability insurance through One Underwriting for stallholders without their own insurance. Stallholders must also provide copies of any relevant permits.

We currently have two Facebook pages, but they will be amalgamated and information on all of our markets will be found in Facebook at @RotaryOrangeCommunityMarkets

The aim of these markets is to develop a friendly and social environment where consumers and stallholders are brought together to buy and sell goods and to generate funds for the Rotary Club of Orange Inc. to distribute to worthy causes.  Recent donations are listed in the Donations section of this website.

These markets provide:

     an opportunity for producers, artists and craftspeople of the region to sell their products, resulting in growth, development and promotion of the regional economy;

     growers and manufacturers with the opportunity to network and develop their skills and, through direct contact with their customers, gain greater knowledge of customer requirements;

     an atmosphere that builds on our sense of community;

     an opportunity for the consumer to purchase directly from the producer or manufacturer; and

     a place where people can shop in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The Market Committee will work to ensure that a broad range of items is available. Products eligible for sale at the markets include: primary produce, plants, food and beverages, arts and crafts, clothing, jewellery, homewares, books and quality second-hand goods.
