Traders at St George’s Market in Belfast have formally asked the council to allow them to trade for up to four weeks rent free due to the impact of the union flag protest marches.
They say the marches have had a devastating effect on business.
Some have claimed to be losing up to £700 every weekend.
Protest marches over Belfast City Council’s decision to stop flying the flag every day have taken place almost every Saturday since 3 December.
The march route has included either Queen’s Bridge or Albert Bridge, both of which are close to the historic St George’s Market.
Most of the traders in the Saturday market are self-employed or run small businesses with only a few employees.
