Middleton in the market for new traders during Love Your Local Market fortnight

Press Release   •   May 13, 2014 12:00 BST

Future businessmen and women can take a stall on Middleton market for just £5 as part of national Love your Local Market fortnight.

The event, which celebrates the market tradition up and down the country, runs from 14 to 28 May and encourages shoppers to go and find out what’s on offer at their local market.

And budding entrepreneurs who fancy trying their hand at selling goods can rent a stall for just £5 a day throughout the fortnight.

Anyone selling goods which are not currently represented on the market can take advantage of the offer to test trade in a traditional market setting. Anyone who would like to have a go at selling is advised to get in there quickly, as stalls are selling fast.

Adam Torevell, Chief Executive of the Middleton Town Centre Management Company, said: “Middleton has a great market but our recent successful teenage event showed that there’s a definite appetite among shoppers for something new. That’s why we’d love anyone who’s got an idea and a product to come along and have a go this Love Your Local market fortnight.”

A memories tent will also be set up on Tuesday 20 May for people to visit and reminisce about Middleton market. Volunteers from the Middleton Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) will be on hand to film people’s recollections, which will be kept as a permanent record of the market through the ages.

Anyone who would like to take a stall on one or more of the days during Love Your Markets fortnight can contact the Middleton Town Centre Manager, Ashleigh Franklin on 07794 374 554 or email
