Code of Practice and Information
No refund of stallholder’s fees will be given if market is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, eg. inclement weather conditions.
Artisans and stall owners must minimise the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for themselves and their customers by taking reasonable and practical measures to mitigate risk. Keep updated with the latest covid guidelines. Malta Markets Markets have been in touch with the Health Authorities who have advised us that the use of perspex dividers, although recommended, is not mandatory.
Protection of both stall owners and customers from the risk of exposure to COVID-19 may include, for example:
✓ Requiring everyone to practice social distancing
✓ Requiring all involved to practice good hygiene for example by the use of hand sanitisers
✓ Reminding stall owners or visitors to the open market to stay home when sick
✓ Cleaning the stalls regularly and thoroughly
✓ Limiting the number of people in front of stalls at any given time
✓ The wearing of masks or visors
✓Enforcing existent conditions regarding the provision of bins by the hawkers
✓ The proper disposal of any used face masks.

The stallholder must be dressed in clean and suitably presentable clothing, appropriate for the prevailing climate. Smoking at the stall and within the market environs is strictly prohibited.
Stalls must be kept clean, tidy and free from hazards. The stallholder will clean up any spillage. Stallholders are responsible for removing their own rubbish at the end of the day. Please leave your stall area the way you found it.
Stalls must be ready for trading by when the market opens to the public. We will be at the market two hours prior to the official opening time for you to be able to start setting up.
Packing up should not begin before market closure to the public.
Even if stallholders sell out, they must remain at the market until closing as it affects the look of the market overall i.e. treat it as an opportunity to promote produce and business.
Antisocial behaviour will mean instant dismissal from the market.
