Casual Stallholders

Booking a casual site is not required (but recommended) and helps us on the day with site allocation, along with making sure we can meet your requirements. This is unless you wish to sell Food and Drink or Fresh Produce where you must contact us and book in advance. To book a site please phone or text the market coordinator, Matthew on 0420 651 531.


Details required:

  • First & Last Name
  • Address
  • Contact Number
  • What you wish to sell
  • How many sites you need & if you need power
  • If you need room for a car and gazebo or have an awning
  • Date you wish to book


We do not require prepayment for bookings, we just ask for notice if you cannot attend.

You then need to turn up at the Ipswich Showgrounds between 4:00 am and 5:30 am on Sunday morning and line up as the RED LINE in the map below, at the Front Market gate (enter the main showgrounds gate near the roundabout and park against the market fence on the left). You will be allocated a site by staff. Only enter the markets if directed to by staff.

Permanent Stallholders

Generally, to become a permanent stallholder you’ll needed to have attended 4 markets. Just ask our staff if you are interested. Permanent stallholders benefit by having the same site each week. They also get let in first before casual stallholders. There’s no added costs or payments in advance. If you can’t make it one week or are going away, we just ask you to let us know in advance.

Stallholder Costs and Conditions

The size of a site is generally 6m (frontage) x 3m-5m (depth) and this will give you enough room if you wanted to bring your own gazebo or two. Your vehicle will need to fit on this site, or be parked in the car park.

The cost of a site starts from $15.00 if you have your own valid public liability insurance (copy needs to be collected) or $22.00 if you DO NOT have public liability insurance (you will then be covered under the Ipswich Show Society’s insurance). Additional half-sites (3m frontage) are available for $7.50 each.

If you would like further information please contact the Show Office between 8:30 and 4:30 Monday to Friday on 3281 1577 or the market coordinator Matthew on 0420 651 531.
