Market table for a tenner offer for budding entrepreneurs
Talented people with something to sell are being urged to try Barnsley markets’ Table for a tenner scheme during National Markets Fortnight in June.
Budding entrepreneurs who make, bake or create can try their hand at trading on a market stall in a prime town centre location.
With expert guidance on hand from friendly, experienced traders, markets managers say the Table for a tenner scheme will be an excellent first step in starting your own business.
“Marks and Spencer began as a market stall in Leeds all those years ago, so if you’ve got something to sell, why not follow in their successful footsteps with your own local-cost business start-up idea?” says Anne Untisz, Barnsley’s town centre services manager.
First-time market traders will be able to apply to trade on Wednesday and Saturday 27 and 30 June and 4 and 7 July in the town centre*.
Mary Portas, the BBC’s Queen of Shops and author of the influential Portas Review published last December, singled out Barnsley as the most exciting market she had seen. Speaking on BBC Radio’s Today programme she said: “Everyone thinks when I say markets I’m thinking, ‘Lets all sit down and have a nice organic lunch,’ but the most exciting market I saw was Barnsley where it’s £10 a table and you get it all out there.” ‘Table for a tenner’ is one of the ideas contained in the Portas Review of the nation’s high streets that aims to breathe new life into markets and town centres nationwide. In it, Mary Portas writes: “Would-be retailers – or simply talented people who have something to sell – should be using indoor and outdoor markets as a step on the business ladder.”
Barnsley market has more than 300 stalls and is open every day except Thursday and Sunday (second-hand car boot sale on Sundays). For more information visit www.barnsley.gov.uk
*Available to budding entrepreneurs resident in Barnsley borough during Love Your Local Market fortnight, and subject to their meeting required trading criteria and completion of a LYLM application form.
