The market stalls are carefully selected to complement Folktown’s trading community and the ethos of the Folktown Market. We operate a waiting list if spaces are oversubscribed..
The fees for 2017 are:
Hot Food £30
Arts and Craft £15
Access to water is included in the price. Traditional market stalls can be hired from the Folktown team, if you don't have your own. A pitch is 3m x 3m.
Traders are included on our website with individual profiles.
A number of things to consider and be aware of for the coming year are the following:
Fees are paid on market day.
If a trader is absent the pitch will be handed over to the next in line.
A lack of promotion by individual traders of the market is grounds for termination of their pitch.
Trader Meetings will be held regularly on market days between 3 and 4 so that everyone has an opportunity to communicate.
The attitude that we are all in this together must be shared by everyone as this is important for the success of the market. The market is a process of which you must envisage yourself being a part of.
Dates to Remember:
