Car boot volunteers
Every week a different charity or voluntary organisation located within a 10 mile radius of Exeter assist with the organisation and running of the Sunday car boot sale. The Charity receives payment of £1.75 for every car ticket sold, or £3.00 for every van/trailer ticket and early bird ticket sold, with a guaranteed minimum payment of £400.00.
If you are involved with a charity and would be interested in assisting at the car boot sale, you need to provide a minimum of 12 volunteers from 5.45 a.m. - 2 p.m.
We are now taking applications for volunteers during 2015. Please complete the forms below.
New traders for the market (not applicable for the car boot sale)
Please note you must have public liability insurance to £5 million to trade on the Sunday Market. Please bring documentation with you on the day so the Supervisors on duty can make a note of the details as we are unable to permit you to trade without it. You will also be required to complete an application form for our records.
You can do this in advance by selecting the Sunday Market Trader Application Form [26kb] and sending your completed form with a copy of your insurance details to the market office.
Devon County Council Car Boot Code of Practice
The Matford Centre Sunday Market & Car Boot Sale is a member of the Trading Standards Car Boot Code of Practice. The Code of Practice ensures legitimate market traders can be clearly identified as they have a legal obligation to display their business name and address.
We do take a number of measures to prevent the sale of counterfeit and illegal items on the market, but if you see a stall selling a product which you think is suspect take a note of the goods, the vehicle registration, position of the stall in question and a description of the seller. Please do not approach the seller yourself, but report the details to Trading Standards or Devon and Cornwall Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Alternatively pass the details on to a member of staff on duty during the day so they can take further action.
