Hobart Showground Sunday Market -Covid-19 Response
Based on statements made by the Prime Minister this morning regarding indoor events with over 100 people, I feel that I have no option other than to close the Sunday Market for the foreseeable future.
I fully understand that many stallholders rely heavily on the market to support themselves and I really do feel for you in these difficult times. I am also conscious of the impact this will have on our dedicated staff and will be working with them to explore all options.
We have arranged some days to open the shed for stall holders to remove their stock. I have no idea how long this will last so strongly advise that you remove all stock as soon as practicable. Unfortunately we can’t accept any liability for anything left in the shed. If you need to store items in the shed, that will be possible for the time being but please let us know. However it is also likely that the shed may be required for some other use down the track so it may be necessary for some unforeseen reason to empty it completely at some stage in the future. If this eventuates, I will endeavour to provide as much notice as possible.
Any permanent and casual stall holders who have already pre-paid for their stalls for the coming weeks, please note that we will work through and refund these payments as fast as possible. You will be notified as soon as it has been processed.
If you need to discuss the matter with us then please phone the office rather than come in as we have also restricted access to the office to minimise risk to the administration staff.
Our market is Historic
Hobart Showground Sunday Market is more than just a place of goods for sale at great prices – it’s part of an historic landmark, a tourist attraction and an institution for our locals. This vast, vibrant centre of entertainment and trade has been operated by the Market owners since 1903, with the origins of The Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania going back to 1821. In any one year the Market attracts over 200,000 visitors.
Grab a bargin
Come and get some great bargains. We have a lot of great stalls: bric-a-brac, soaps, fishing items, handmade head bands, garden statues, homemade cakes, jams, biscuits, dog treats, knitted items, scenic photographs, free range eggs, fresh produce, organic veggies, incense, fresh cut flowers, face painting occasionally, handmade jewellery, Sunday papers, candles & oils, miniature doll house items, DVD’s, CD’s, pre-loved dolls and doll clothes and much, much more. Spread over one massive building, it’s the largest indoor and open air market in Hobart. Although the indoor area is well weatherproofed it is recommended you dress for the weather whatever the time of year. It is a rare day when you will not be tempted to browse the open air stallholders who come whatever the weather. Please note that product availability may change subject to stallholders attendance.
