Become a Trader

Are you interested in becoming a trader, either in the Market Hall, or at our outdoor Saturday market?

First of all, we recommend that you take time to have a good look around our markets.  Consider how your proposed product line fits in with the existing product lines.


Indoor rents for stalls start from £88 per week, which is all inclusive except for any business rates which may become chargeable.  As of 1st May, 2016, the initial minimum length of licence is 6 months, with a month's notice period thereafter.

Outdoor rents are currently £30, which includes a traditional market stall erected with canopy and 8' x 4' trading surface.

Rents are reviewed annually.
