No stalling to get into Thieves’ Market

No stalling to get into Thieves’ Market

Dunedin (Friday, 16 November) Dunedin’s annual Thieves’ Alley Market Day will cram the inner streets of Dunedin on Saturday 9 February 2013 with more than 350 stalls expected.

The extensive market incorporates the Octagon, lower and upper Stuart, Princes and George Streets out to Moray Place and Bath Street. Stall registrations are now open and although there is no restriction to the number of stalls, DCC Community Events Co-ordinator Marilyn Anderson said the preferred spaces are limited so those intending to book a stall must be quick.

“Most people don’t want their stall to be on a lean, so the hillier areas are out” she said.

The Thieves’ Alley Market Day has become a landmark event for Dunedin and will draw tens of thousands into the central city to enjoy the colourful, carnival atmosphere. Two large visiting cruise ships, Dawn Princess and Carnival Spirit, and smaller ship Caledonian Sky will swell the number of market goers still more.

“Markets are very popular in Dunedin, both for people with crafts, local food and plants to sell and buyers looking for a bargain,” Ms Anderson said.

Stall holders are expected from throughout the South Island plus many from the North Island. Registration forms are available at www.dunedin.govt.nz/events.

The market begins trading at 10am Saturday 9 February and closes by 5pm.
