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 holder charges for Council ran market days

  • Stall holder ground rent for a single market day, on a 3x3m plot, is charged at £15 (ad-hoc bookings/trial days). Multiple plots can be purchased at an additional charge.
  • 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 January 2021(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.

Cancelled Market Days

Both the Council and external market operators reserve the right to cancel a market at any time. Details of a market cancellation are usually provided through the respective operators social media page/s with notice. Adverse weather conditions or other factors may deem the cancellation of a market to be necessary in the interest of public safety.

Changes in government guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic, to include additional 'localised' restrictions that may affect changes to market trading or the wider use of Town Squares, are subject to change at anytime.
