FAQs 

What's the refund policy?

If you can't make it on the day then please let us know as soon as possible.  You're welcome to send someone in your place, but you'll let to let us know their name and email address.  The Fore Street Flea or InExeter cannot be held responsible for any losses made.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The closest long-stay car parks are located Mary Arches Street and Smythen Street. As the road will be closed from 9am there will be no direct access to Fore Street by car, but traders can come onto the street by car to quickly unload. Bartholemew Street will remain open to traffic so you can still pull up very close to the Flea. Set up time is strictly from 10am onwards.

When you arrive look for a free space or come and find one of the organisers if you need help (we'll be adorned in reflective yellow outfits) who will be able to point you to an available pitch. Please ensure that your stall is set up and ready for 11.55am.

How big is my pitch?

2 Meters x 2 Meters - It's helpful to make sure your stall is as attractive and appealing to shoppers - you can use any props you like to display your items as long as they are safe, we ask you not to use glass displays or anything that may fall over or potentially cause harm to others. The Fore Street Flea does not supply tables or any props - you'll need to bring everything you need for your pitch. 

Finding space, sharing with friends, can I be next to a specific person?

Spaces marked with a X or a name are reserved for Fore Street Traders or stallholders with disabilities. All other spaces are free to be chosen from on the day. If you'd like to be next to a friend we suggest that you arrive together or hold a space for one another. As long as you're within an allocated space, feel free to buddy up with your friends.

What if it rains?

The Fore Street Flea is an all weather event. Please supply your own coverings (2m x 2m maximum size), umbrellas, warm clothing and stall covering. In the event of an extreme weather warning we will cancel the event and notify everyone attending via email.

What if I need to leave my stall/ where are the loos? There are toilets in a few of the cafes/shops/pubs surrounding the Fore Street Flea. If you need to leave your stall please ask a neighbour / friend to watch it for you.

First Aid, Safety & Security Any accidents on the day should be reported to one of the organisers (look for the yellow jackets) - there will be first aiders available throughout the duration of the event. It's important that the pavements are not blocked by boxes or large groups of people, and that the middle of the street is not obstructed by any fixtures or items. These areas are thoroughfares for pedestrians as well as the emergency services. There will be a minimum of two Chapter-8 trained security staff on duty during the event. If you notice any untoward behaviour or any other suspicious activity please do notify one of them.

Finish time and cleaning up - can I leave early? We encourage you to stay at the Flea until 4pm, even if you sell out of everything early. It may be difficult and hazardous to pack your things up while the fair is still busy and it's helpful to other traders if the Flea still looks as though it's in full swing. Please take all of your belongings and litter away with you, and be respectful to the community.

How can I spread the word? We welcome any help from stallholders, we'd love it if you could spare the time to share the event with your friends and customers and invite people along to the event.
