Can I trade at a council market?

In order to trade at a council market you must have:

Please note: we do not allow some items to be sold, such as:

  • second-hand goods
  • pre-owned DVDs/CDs
  • offensive weapons, including kitchen knives
  • controlled drugs and tobacco
  • offensive material
  • fake goods. 

This is not a full list and the final decision will be made by the markets officer.

Casual and permanent traders

All traders begin as casual traders. As a casual trader you:

  • will not be guaranteed a pitch, as they are allocated on a 'first-come, first-served' basis
  • may not be given the same pitch each time you trade.

You must trade for 6 consecutive weeks as a casual trader before you can be considered as a permanent trader. Once you have traded for 6 consecutive weeks, the markets officer will discuss your options with you. If you are granted a permanent pitch you will be issued with an information pack that explains how you pay and what you should do if you decide you no longer wish to trade. 

  • Pay the appropriate costs by credit or debit card over the phone. 
  • We can hand you your receipt on the day of the market, or email or post it to you. 
  • We do not accept cash payments. 

Step 2 – If you want to trade again

  • If you wish to trade again simply call the markets officer to book and pay for a stall in the week before the market.
