The market takes place on Mondays, including Bank Holidays. The market consists of 8ft x 6ft stalls with 4ft table tops complete with boards and covers. There are a few pitches also available. Casual traders are welcome but advance booking is recommended. The rent is £31.25 (inc VAT) per stall/pitch. A trader can apply for a license but has to trade for a period of time to satisfy all requirements of a regular trader. Once a license is granted, a trader pays for 48 weeks a year on a monthly basis. (4 weeks) Before trading, a trader must show he/she has a minimum of £5m Public Liability Insurance and, where applicable, Employee Insurance. This can be obtained through private companies or through the NMTF via membership.
The market has about 84 stalls at present with many traders having plied their wares for over 20 years! (some second generation!) There is always a very good stall selection with little duplication where possible. This leads to a pleasant, friendly atmosphere enjoyed by traders and customers alike!
