Ever fancied trying your hand at being a market trader?

Fleetwood Market is doing its bit to encourage new traders – and three new stallholders who took up a special offer last year are still successfully trading.

As part of the nationwide promotion, Love Your Local Market (LYLM), Fleetwood Market is again offering a support package for new traders.

The campaign has a focus on youth markets, and all budding entrepreneurs aged 16 to 20 are being offered a reduced rental of £10 per day for an indoor pitch, with a discounted rental period of six months on offer thereafter for all new traders who continue trading.

Anyone interested in trying their hand at trading at Fleetwood Market can contact the market manager Julian Brent on (01253) 887651, or email

Meanwhile, existing traders are not being excluded from the LYLM activities either. They will be staging a fashion show on Saturday, May 24, at 12.30pm, to showcase the range of goods currently on sale in the popular market.
