NEW businesses are being offered a unique chance to try out their trade on a free stall at Loughborough Market as part of a National Market Day event on June 23.
Charnwood Borough Council’s markets and fairs team wants to support new traders with the free stall as well as offering a three-month half-rent deal for traders who stay on the market.
The offer is part of the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) National Market Day event on Saturday, June 23, which is also part of the wider Love Your Market campaign.
Councillor Paul Harley, Charnwood Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture, said: “This is a fantastic initiative and a golden opportunity for new local businesses to get a foothold in one of the region’s most vibrant markets.
“The Council is committed to helping the borough grow and prosper and we do whatever we can to help support local trade.
“Whether you sell crafts, home-made products, toys or any other products, get in touch and don’t miss your chance to take advantage of this great offer.”
The offer is only open to new businesses. Council officers will be on hand to offer advice and new traders will be covered by the Council’s insurance on the free stall day. Applications must be received by Friday, June 8.
National Market Day was launched in response to the Portas Report which revealed that British high streets had reached “a crisis point” due to years of underinvestment and competition from out-of-town supermarkets and the internet.
