Q. What is your refund/cancellation policy?

The event and its attendees need reliability as gaps make the overall market appear messy. 

Should you not be able to attend we will endeavour to fill your place as long as you have advised us no later than 4 weeks  prior to the event. Should we be unable to find a replacement stallholder, or if you cancel within 4 weeks of the market, your site fee is non refundable. Please note that as this is an indoor venue, it is very unlikely that the event will be cancelled. Refunds (less any costs incurred) will therefore only be issued in cases of extreme cases of extreme disaster.

Q. Is there a cash out service at the market?

A. There is no bank, cash out or EFTPOS facilities provided by the Kapiti Indoor Market.  You will need to provide your own facilities  to accept credit and debit cards.
