I’m late, and I missed the deadline. Can I still get in?
If you’ve missed the application deadline at the start of the month, then all the available stall spots have been allocated already. The only possibility is to pop an email to us and ask to be considered for the cancellation list.
Please note that there will already be a cancellation list from those applicants who did not get a stall offer. Also, bear in mind that if you are asking to be considered for a cancellation spot, we’ll still need to know what kind of stuff you’re proposing to sell.
Since we might get a cancellation in the days leading up to the market, it could be 48 or 72 hours notice that you might get.
Is my craft or art stall appropriate for the flea market?
We’re primarily a second hand flea market. There might be the odd craft/art stall, but you’ll find that the majority of our stallholders are clearing out their wardrobes and gaffs of stuff, recycling or up-cycling some gear, or trading in some antiques or furniture. This means that there’s not that many opportunities for a stall with handcrafted items or art, unfortunately.
Having said that, we do have come crafters and artists with us at the Flea, so please do consider putting in an application with us.
I have a food stall, can I trade with you as well?
We have stall openings for second hand goods traders, but we don’t have any openings for food or drinks stalls, unfortunately. Any replacement food stalls at the Flea Market is by invitation only.
Clothes rails: do you have them? Can I bring one?
Sorry, we don’t have clothes rails to offer our stallholders. If you want to bring one along, then you’re very welcome.
We suggest that you invest in something sturdy. The flimsy ones do break, and are more hassle than the price you pay for them.
Where are the stalls located?
There are three zones to the market: indoors at the Dublin Food Co-op, outside on the road of Newmarket Square with gazebos, and indoors in the Green Door Market.
Do I need insurance?
Insurance for the goods that you sell is your responsibility. You must determine if this is something that you need.
The Flea Market organisers have an umbrella insurance for the event. Our insurance does not cover public liability for the goods sold at the market.
If you determine there was a high risk for your stuff (is it ready-to-eat food that’s not cooked or is raw? Is it sharp knives that you’re selling as juggling items?) then you should consider public liability insurance.
To get a stall, we do not require you to have insurance cover, however.
