Here is the general information that you need to decide whether or not our markets are right for you. We are always looking to include more quality traders to our team.
A single pitch is a 3m x 3m space, unless otherwise stated in advance, and you will need to provide a 3m x 3m green and white gazebo. You will also need to provide display tables and stands as required.
Pitch fees start from £50 per day dependent on size and location and you must provide your own Public Liability Insurance to the value of £5m.
A booking is only confirmed when your Application has been officially accepted and payment has been received.
Pitch fees must be paid in advance of the start date through the Southern Market Traders Website Payment Facility but please do not try to pay before your application has been accepted.
Once accepted, a trader will be offered a four week trial period to assess the suitability of the market for their product. During the trial period, either the trader or the organiser may terminate the agreement. At the end of the trial, the trader will be required to pay a two week deposit to secure the pitch on a permanent basis. This deposit will be retained, with the trader paying rent each week until such time as the trader wishes to give notice to quit. At this time there will be a two week rent free notice period to use the deposit. Deposits are not refundable.
