The Makers & Finders Markets operate rain or shine (unless deemed unsafe or grounds are damaged). Stall holders are required to provide suitable shelter for wet weather. In the case that a Stallholder needs to cancel, if the stallholder notifies the Market manager by email giving 48 hours notice, stall fees may be transferred to the next consecutive market date. In the event that a market is cancelled by market management (due to external factors such as extreme unsafe weather), all confirmed stallholders will be contacted by 6am on the morning of the event via the Facebook group and via email. Where adverse weather means we need to pack up the market early or cancel entirely, no refunds or stall credits are given. Management is not responsible for adverse weather conditions so there are no refunds for this reason. Market Cancellations Where the grounds are unavailable to trade (eg flooded), but the weather is otherwise fine, we'll duly offer refunds or stall credits
