Have you got what it takes to become a trader?

Are you an established trader looking for a fresh and exciting place to sell? Are you a young entrepreneur with a brilliant business idea? Want to expand your current business, but not sure how? If the answer to any of these questions is yes... you might be just what we're looking for!

We're looking for new traders to join us in time for the Love Your Local Market event and the spring and summer months - both in our victorian covered market and weekly outdoor market.

Becoming a market trader is a great wat to start up your own business with minimal cost or overheads and can be a great opportunity for self-employment. We can offer stalls for every business and budget.

We're offering a great discount scheme for all new traders - £10 for the first week (plus free insurance), £20 for the second week and £10 for the third week. There's also financial assistance available for covered market traders.

Interested? Get in touch and find out how we can help your business ideas grow!
