2019 is the year of the Young Traders Market. Traditional retail markets across England are working together to offer trading opportunities and business support to entrepreneurs aged between 16 and 30.
It is a collaborative approach nurturing young talent, advocating market trading as a business model, and encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to trade on the nations traditional retail markets.
In Kirkby Lonsdale we will be holding a Young Traders Market in the Market Square on Thursday 20th June between 3pm-8pm.
This is part of a national initiative to bring on the next generation of young entrepreneurs and encourage new business start-up and growth. The market and traders attending will benefit from being well promoted throughout. There will be some unique ideas from young traders with a range of different stalls. There will also be live music performances from local musicians during the Market, so it should be quite an event!
You may have the opportunity to go through to a regional final and a national final where big prizes can be won as well as great recognition and promotion for your business.
We are also looking at holding more Young Traders Markets throughout the year as feel this is a very important area to encourage and promote.
A market stall can often be the start of something... a stepping stone onto the next stage of your business idea. It could be a skill you have…. or a product you have to sell.... a crafter, a baker, a candlestick maker, a beautician that can offer a beauty service...?
ARE YOU 16-30 AND WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE PART?
There will be a limited number of stalls available at the Young Traders Market, so don’t delay with your application. Please contact Cindy Power for more information and an application form firstname.lastname@example.org.
