Start Up Scheme

Start Up Scheme

Whether you are self-employed, a small business or a young entrepreneur, we would love to hear from you!

Our Start Up Scheme provides a platform for creating new market traders. It gives individuals and businesses who have not previously traded on a market, the opportunity to test the market with their products.

The National Market Traders Federation have created a great Start Up guide for anyone thinking of becoming a market trader. The guide is full of useful advice and information and you can view it for free via this link: Spring into Markets.

What you can expect:

  • Start Up Scheme includes your 1st market for free plus a period of reduced rent
  • A ‘Swadlincote Market’ commercial grade, gazebo, including the canopy (and sides if required)
