Hartlepool Borough Council is working with Middleton Grange Shopping Centre to breathe new life into the indoor market by offering a package of support to six new businesses.
The aim is to use six empty market stalls for businesses to try their ideas before committing to a career in retail.
The Indoor Market Project will see shopping centre bosses waive the rent, service charges and insurance charges for the stalls for six months.
Hartlepool Mayor Stuart Drummond agreed the plans at a meeting of his regeneration and neighbourhoods portfolio.
In a bid to revamp the fortunes of empty town centre units, the town was awarded £100,000 through the High Street Innovation Fund and this will be used for the market project.
Mayor Drummond approved £20,000 from the High Street Innovation Fund for the Indoor Market Project and £5,000 towards improving signage advertising the town centre car parks to encourage more visitors.
