An outdoor street market will be held in Scarborough on Thursday 28 June as part of National Market Day.
The aim is to give potential new traders a taste of what it is like, as well as support a national cause which encourages residents to visit their local markets.
Scarborough Indoor Market Hall and Vaults Manager, Terry Cullen, said: “The street market will be held in St Helen’s Square with the focus on attracting new starters and highlighting the opportunities that are available for market trading.
“We would like to give new starters a chance to promote innovative product lines and the only exclusions for this particular market are the sale of food, second hand items or bric-a -brac.
“We’d like to provide the opportunity for local people to trade on a market and potentially start a new business. We’ll be providing a complete stall for the day and, to encourage new traders, the charge will be kept to a minimum.”
If you would like to discuss taking a stall in St Helen’s Square on 28 June contact Terry Cullen in Scarborough Market Hall on 01723 373579 or email firstname.lastname@example.org; or call Nick Taylor on 01723 232440, email email@example.com before the deadline of 20 June.
The national event – recommended by Mary Portas in her December 2011 report to Government – is being coordinated by the National Association of British Market Authorities with support from the Markets Alliance and the National Markets Traders Federation.
