Ever Thought of Becoming a Market Trader?

 

Bedford markets are growing and Bedford Borough Council is actively supporting people who would like to start trading on the market by providing advice sessions and support. Those with an ambition to trade can find out more at one of the council’s FREE information sessions on Monday 6th September 2010, at 10am, 1pm or 4pm, in the Harpur Suite, Harpur Square, Bedford. 

 

From as little as £13.50 per week, people can start casual trading on Bedford’s markets, subject to paperwork and insurance.

 

Anybody with a flair for selling and a good eye for business can become a successful market trader, as either a part-time or full-time career. The council have an experienced team to help support and advise those that may require encouragement during their start-up period.

 

While other towns are reporting a downturn in their markets, Bedford’s are thriving. The colourful gazebo stalls attract visitors from many surrounding villages, towns and beyond.

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Bedford has a thriving range of markets, and we want to encourage and support anyone who is keen to become a new market trader. Once individuals have the inclination to start-up a market stall, and the talent to keep it running, there is no stopping them from achieving enormous success.”

 

During each session there will be an opportunity to ask questions, so that people can find out more about starting up as a market trader and whether it would suit their business objectives.

 

There is no need to book, just ‘roll up, roll up’ on the day!
