Stall for a Tenner

Stall for a Tenner

On National Market Day we want market operators to embrace Mary Portas’s proposal to provide “stalls for a tenner”. We want market operators to take the initiative and use contacts with local colleges, high schools, job clubs and the media to promote interest in taking a market stall for a day. Some people will simply use the opportunity to gain an experience and, as such, it may plant a seed that will flourish in later years particularly in respect of colleges and high schools. For others it may be the start of a career in market trading. Marks & Spencer and Morrisons started on a market stall. There is no reason why a new generation of market traders cannot aspire to such achievements. Once we have identified the markets that would participate in “Love your Local Market” and National Market Day we will be making resources available to supplement what you will be offering to potential new market traders.
