The council is hoping a new discount scheme will encourage traders to set up in Buxton’s dwindling market.
High Peak Borough Council is offering people the chance to trade for just £5 a day in the hope it will push more new traders to take up stalls.
The market has been in decline for a number of years and their have been calls recently for the authority to take action to revive the attraction.
Councillor Godfrey Claff, executive member for regeneration, said: “High Peak’s markets play a key role in making our towns attractive destinations that people want to visit and spend time in.
“We want to support the traders that bring such colour and variety to our markets and to attract new stall holders to join them.
“This is a fantastic initiative which will help first-timers have a go at standing and encourage others to help maintain our historic markets.”
