May 31, 2012 Darlington Borough Council
LOCAL businesses in Darlington have the chance to take a stand in the town centre to promote their products and services at the first ever “Love Your Local Market’ event set to take place on Sunday 8 July between 11.00am and 3.00pm.
The event has been created in response to one of the recommendations made in the Mary Portas Review of Town Centres for all UK markets to hold a National Markets Day during the period 23 June and 8 July 2012 (which could then form part of their annual calendar).
Leading this initiative is the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA), with support from the trader’s representative organisation NMTF.
The aim is to promote how markets play an important role in providing self employment, as a business incubator and to showcase entrepreneurial spirit. The focus is on what markets can offer, creating sustainable jobs and helping to maintain the vitality of town centres.
Stalls can be booked for £10. Traders will be given either a table or space within a gazebo, depending on their needs. The ‘stall for a tenner’ fee is the only cost to those traders attending and this includes liability cover on the day.
Peter Wilson, Darlington Borough Council’s Markets Manager, said:
“The stalls are ideal for new and existing businesses who might want to test the market with a new product or service or to use the stall to increase awareness of their business, especially if they are located outside of the town centre. You do not necessarily have to sell or trade anything – you could just use the stall to distribute business cards and or leaflets and offer advice and other information. For only £10 it is a brilliant way to experience a presence in the town centre for the day.”
Councillor Nick Wallis, Darlington Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Local Environment said:
“There are many examples of businesses that have started out as a market stall and have gone on to bigger things including George Cohen (Tesco); Richard Branson (Virgin), Matalan; Marks & Spencer and Morrison’s. This is a great chance for local businesses to get out and meet local people and sell the products and services they provide.”
Stalls will be sited along Northgate/Prospect Place, along High Row and into Blackwellgate and possibly West Row (depending on demand).
For further information, or to book a stall businesses can contact email@example.com or telephone 01325 388 207.
