How to set up your stall

Operating from Hawley Wharf Camden and the use of the stall provided by the landlord is entirely at your own risk.We advise you to be extremely cautious when setting up your stall. 

Open ceiling on the merchant side. Before doing so, make sure that the area around and above is clear of obstructions. Do not stand under the ceiling at any point until it is secured on both sides. Lift one side of the ceiling and whilst holding it in place, use the smaller bar to secure the ceiling on to the stall.

2) Open the ceiling on the customer side repeating the same process.

3) Lower the side extensions. These are the areas of the stall that extend the surface area to display products. Before doing anything else, ensure that the chains to the left and the right are secured. Next, unloosen the sliders that allow the extensions to fall in to place.

4) Open the extension on the other side repeating the same process.

5) If you do not require the side extension. Remove it and place it under your stall, ensuring that it carefully positioned in order to not fall. The extension is removed by firmly holding the side extension. Unclip on one side, unclip the other side and then lift the side extension. Check the area around you before lifting it out of position. 

Please ensure that during trading hours your stall remains clean and tidy as it may be inspected by Event Management and other authorised staff. 

You are required to ensure that areas that might be susceptible to spillages are protected with non slip flooring. Any spillages that occur should be immediately reported to the Event Manager who will ask you to cease trading in order that you can clean the spillage. 


The Spread has issued you with a payment card reader and log in credentials to The Spread's payment system called Square. If you do not have this with you, you will not be permitted to trade. The card reader links to the Square Point of Sale app. You will need to ensure that you have the latest version of the app downloaded as well as the latest version of the operating system on your smart device. If you do not know your log in credentials, please check your inbox for previous emails, or speak to the Event Manager.

The Event Manager has access to the bin room. Any waste generated should be kept behind your stall. The event Manager will visit your stall at least once per hour, which is your opportunity to provide them with waste for removal.  All waste must be seperated into non-recyclable and recyclable sealed bags, which are clearly identifiable.
