Becoming a Market Trader

This year there has been an increased focus on markets following the Mary Portas report on the High Street and the Love Your Local Market and National Market day campaign.

Becoming an outdoor market trader is easy and if done well very profitable. All you need is a good idea or talent, public liability and four clips to hold the covers down. We even provide stalls, canopies and free parking for the day. There is no tied on lease and you pay on the day. The fees vary depending on size but are extremely reasonable. If you require more details please contact David Clough on 01691 680222 or email on d.clough(at)

The Markets also have their own website


Additional Resources

You can find additional resources related to becoming a market trader on both the NABMA and NMTF websites. The NMTF website also provides access to a range of market trader insurance deals, however there are other insurance providers who also provide similar deals.
