Pop-up shops

We are running a scheme to support town centre businesses

We are offering traders the opportunity to open a pop up shop in the Covered Market between 9am and 5pm, for between one and five consecutive days.

The pop up shops are free as a means for the council to support town centre businesses. Applications will be accepted on a first come first served basis. We reserve the right to sift all applicants; our aim is to ensure a well-balanced and interesting mix of goods and so only goods which are not already available within the market complex will be allowed to take up the offer.

If you are interested in taking part please fill in the initial application [pdf document] and email to markets@darlington.gov.uk or post to the Town Hall using the address above.

You must include documentary evidence of your public liability insurance and, if selling food and/or drink, the other relevant documents identified.

Once your application has been approved we will contact you to arrange your first booking.
