Introducing the crew
Lauren & Lewis
Hi! We're Lauren & Lewis.
Fuelled by a shared passion for celebrating our community + supporting small business, we have created an exciting platform to showcase the talents of our amazing local creatives.
As parents of two young boys, Elijah + Isaiah, it's super important to us to make all of our events family friendly + FUN.
Our core goal is to create a positive space that connects makers with the community, making shopping + supporting local easy.
We’re all about spreading happy vibes & kindness and are super excited to be on this market running, (at times crazy) venture together! If you see us at an event, please say hi! We’d love to meet you!
We operate Homegrown eco-consciously...
What does this mean? Well, in a nutshell, we are passionate about reducing our environmental impact so we have a few incentives to keep our event running as green as possible.
We have a three bin system which allows for food waste to be composted & recyclables to be separated from general waste
We only accept stall holders that agree to our eco guidelines which include the banning of plastic packaging & request stall holders to offer refill systems
Our ‘Mug Libraries’ offer an alternative to a single use coffee cup, attendees are welcome to borrow a mug & simply chuck it in our wash bin after use
We are by no means perfect, but we’re trying! We’re always looking for new ways to operate in a more
enviro-friendly way & in September we will be launching two new exciting incentives! Keep your eyes on our socials for the details to drop! Woo!
Ellen is the designer behind our website & marketing material. She is also a stall holder, selling her artworks and handmade earrings. You can see more of her work by visiting her website www.ellenjane.com.au
+ market tips

*prices may vary for speciality events
Do all products have to be handmade?
We love handmade + most homegrown stallholders are makers. We will also allow stalls that design their own products, nothing mass produced/imported. Proof of design is required.
Do stall holders need insurance?
All stall holders must provide their own $20m public liability insurance. We will require a copy of your certificate within 7 days of stall approval.
What set up do I need?
All standard sites are 3x3m & you must provide your own marquee - any colour is fine. More stall set up details are outlined in our stall holder agreement upon acceptance.
Can I share a stall with my friend?
We do not accept split stall applications. All stall holders must apply separately outlining all products they intend to sell. Any new products added after acceptance require prior approval before bringing to market days. For example, candle makers cannot bring body products without seeking authorisation from Homegrown management.
What are the COVID safety requirements for stall holders?
All stall holders must complete their own covid safe plan, register their business as covid safe + adhere to all covid safety protocols outlined in our signed agreement.
Are dogs allowed at Homegrown?
Yes, absolutely, YES! Furry friends are welcome at all of our locations.
