2017 August & September
Every Saturday and Sunday
950 Yates Street
Yates Street Market space is available on the back Patio of 950 Yates st. for the duration of the market day (10am-8pm). We will supply a canopy tent with natural lighting and storage space for extra stock. You supply your lights, shelving units and product. The booth sizes offered are A (8’x8′) and B (6’x8′).
The area will be designed for easy movement so customers can view each display. The numbers of exhibitors will be restricted in the various craft categories and the overall size of the market will be limited in order to ensure participants every chance of financial success.
This initiative will allow budding artisans to test the Yates Street Victoria market and decide whether to book a space for particular days or for the entire duration of the market.
We invest in promotions through publicists, website, promotional flyers/posters and social media. We work diligently to advertise the Yates Street Market, attracting both new and repeat customers.
