If you are thinking of setting up a new market in your area, the first thing you are going to need is people to help you and partners to make it happen.


It is important to recognise in the planning stage the various categories of people required to deliver a successful market.


At the very least your market will require:

  • A committee: to help take care of meeting all the legal requirements and to come up with a plan with which to steer the market
  • A market manager: to be responsible for the day to day management.
  • Volunteers: to tackle the many support tasks that contribute to the success of the project.
  • Traders: it is vital that there is a good mix of traders
  • Customers: when considering trader mix it is important to service the needs of the community and social inclusion


In taking your market project forward the support of local Councillors, your MP and other town centre stakeholders is very important. You should keep them informed and get their support whenever possible.
