How to become a trader

Interested in becoming a trader? Please click on the pdf icon Market stall charges [122kb] to find out about the cost of renting a stall on the market. We offer discounts when traders use more than one stall and we also have a popular kipper season from 1 January to 31 March when all rates are reduced by £5. New traders who stand for up to three month's continuous paid trading, receive one week free for each month.

On your first day you will be allocated a stall at 8am. You will be met by a council officer wearing a hi-vis vest in the morning, who will let you know which stalls are available. You will need to bring photographic identification such as a passport. You will also need to provide proof of public liability insurance and if you employ a member of staff you will need employer's liability insurance. Casual traders can book a vacant stall in advance and set up at 7am.

You can drive onto the market place in order to set up your stall.  Vehicles must be removed by 9.30am and must not return onto the market place until 4pm. We provide free car parking passes for the Robin Hood Line Car Park.
