Markets in Town Centres

Markets in Town Centres

Markets are a great and cost effective way of increasing the retail presence and diversity in areas, whilst at the same time providing a powerful tool for generating extra footfall for local businesses.

The Council are keen to support the expanding market presence in town centres and facilitate regular markets of all types across the Borough, including Night Markets and Street Food events.

In addition to regular markets, the Council will continue to host one-off, seasonal and specialist markets throughout the year, including the hugely popular arts and craft fairs.

  • Stall holders that wish to attend our markets more regularly, can benefit from a reduced ground rent of £10 per single market day, per 3x3m plot. In order to qualify for this reduced tariff, a stall holder must pay for an entire month in advance. For example, a stall holder that wishes to attend every Monday market only during February 2022 (four Mondays), on a 3x3m stall plot, can pay a reduced tariff of £40 to do so. Otherwise, single market day tariff applies per 3x3m plot.
