Welcome to our Terms and Conditions

The Queanbeyan Hive & Seek Markets
1. Stall Holders Information
Sales are only to be made from you allocated space.
How you décor your area and sell from your spot is up to you. This market will be in The Hive gardens, perhaps in the gallery and will spill out into the street. Larger umbrellas will be allowed as long as they have secure and effective stands that are not in the way of Seekers.
All stall holders need to be mindful of other stall holders ensuring that they have clear, physical and visual access to the rest of the market.
Hive & Seek are advocates for recycling wares and support local growers, artists, designers and not for profit organisations. If your wares are mass produced or for commercial gain then Hive & Seek is not the place for you. We will ask you to pack up your goods if you have not been honest with us about your products.

3. BUMP IN and BUMP OUT
Bump in (arrival and set up times) is from 8.30am.
Food vendors and Inside The Hive stalls can setup on Friday night by negotiation.
All Hive & Seek stall holders must have their names ticked off on arrival and we will let you know your allocated space location.
We consider a number of factors when deciding on stall holder positioning including competition, weather, spatial constraints, shop owners interests, security & public safety, consumer behaviour
& existing infrastructure.
We understand that some of you travel quite a distance to get here, and sometimes there are extreme circumstances. Please message Jo Keenan on 0438 951 782 to let us know you’re running late.
Please unload your goods and then move your car to a nearby surrounding carpark to enable Seekers easy access to the Hive.
