This page is your go-to for market info – we email updates but also post everything there for easy access.
Fees, timings, general information and rules
Please read the Market Rules document (PDF).
Yass has just been placed under another 14 days of stay-at-home – https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/news/Pages/20210913_01.aspx
Given that order goes past our September date, we have no option but to cancel.
Fingers crossed for October!
All stalls must have a COVID-safe plan and display signage advising people to:
- have sanitiser for staff and visitor use,
- maintain social distancing, and
- only handle products they intend to buy.
as the markets are a ‘retail space’, masks will be mandatory for visitors and stallholders.
ACT stalls – if ACT rules permit you to travel for work, you must complete an entry to NSW registration with Service NSW https://apply.service.nsw.gov.au/nsw-entry-act-declaration
If you have ANY symptoms or are feeling unwell, DO NOT attend the markets.
Market Rules have been updated – read them here – https://riverbankmarkets.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Riverbank-Markets-rules-v2.2.pdf . The updated section ‘Market Bookings’ and ‘Stallholder cancellation’ is to address no-shows and site allocation procedures.
- Regular/Monthly bookings will be allocated permanent sites towards the ‘front’ of the markets. Monthly bookings are automatic and only have to let us know if you are not coming. Non-attendance without notice or non-payment of fees may result in being reclassified as a casual booking.
- Casual bookings will be allocated sites on a first-in first-served basis subject to availability, and must confirm if they are attending when the reminder email is sent.

Customer prize draw
We’re excited to announce the Riverbank Markets prize draw each market.
How it works
- When a customer buys from you, you hand them an entry form to complete.
- At 1:45pm each market we’ll draw a winner of one $50 gift voucher and one $20 gift voucher to spend at any market stand.
- If the winner of the $50 voucher has listed your stand name you will receive $25 off your booking for the following market.
Forms will be available from us at the Farmhouse Pet Treats stand in the morning, and the entry box will also be on that stand.
The winners’ gift vouchers will be dated, numbered, signed, and have an expiry date. If you are handed one you may treat it as cash – just bring the voucher to the Farmhouse Pet Treats stand and we’ll swap the voucher for actual cash. If you’re unsure, you can check with us before accepting it.
The Riverbank Markets have a strong community support program, donating sites to community organisations as well as direct funding contributions. See more on our community page.
We hope to see you at the next market!
