Doris Downham, 80, has been running the glass and china stall in Pontefract Market Hall for 46 years and pays £125 a week rent.
She said Wakefield Council had been renting stalls out free of charge to new traders, while loyal stallholders were still having to pay full rates despite falling incomes.
Mrs Downham, of Holywell Lane, Glass Houghton, said: “Last year I had to go in to hospital for an operation and I was forced to close my stall for eight weeks. I got in touch with the council and what they offered me as a discount was an insult.
