Rules of the Market

1. MARKET MANAGER AND VOLUNTEERS

Club Marion will be represented on site by a designated Market Manager. The Market Manager will do his best to run the market efficiently to create a safe and pleasant environment for Visitors to the Market and Sellers. There will also be Market Volunteers who help to run the Market for Club Marion under the supervision of the Market Manager.

2. KEEPING THE MARKET SAFE AND PLEASANT

Everyone on site must comply with the reasonable directions of the Market Manager or a Market Volunteer regarding any health or safety issues. Any person who fails to follow the directions of the Market Manager or who, in the Market Manager’s opinion, is behaving offensively may be excluded from the premises by the Market Manager.

3. CONCERNS

Serious concerns about any aspect of the Market operations must be reported in the first instance to the Market Manager. The Market Manager will note such concerns in writing and may, in his absolute discretion, give directions to resolve the concerns. If concerns then remain, they may be taken to the General Manager of Club Marion the next business day.
