Be a Stall Holder!

Young people aged 10-25 can come and sell their homemade food,  horticulture, cosmetics, art, crafts and more at our Young Makers Market Events!

The only rule is that you have to have created or altered the product yourself!

Space hire is free and tables and marquees are available for hire $5 each.

Events are held through-out the year  and at different local venues around Castlemaine.
