New to Markets: 

To become a stallholder you need to ensure you are prepared to operate at markets. 
Ensure you have the right product for your sales, no matter if they are handmade, wholesale purchased or other items. 
Check your price point.  Is it suitable for the markets you want to attend.  
Practice your stall set up several times to see how it shows to the public.   
Set up a market box: 
Pens, receipt book for cash sales if customers want one, notepad, paper clips, bulldog clips (these can be invaluable on windy days). 
cash tin with float, credit card - Eftpos transactions, price signs, business cards. 

Equipment: Trestle tables, full length table cloths https://lunaweddingandeventsupplies.com.au/collections/fitted-tablecloths

Marquee - this is an important part of your market set up. There are guidelines that should be followed when purchasing a marquee and it must adhere to Australian Standards.
Your marquee is your place of business, it is worthwhile to invest in a good quality marquee that will not break at the first high wind market you attend.
