Frequently Asked Questions About Market Trading

 Love Your Markets
Will I automatically be allocated a stall as a casual trader?
We do try to accommodate all casual traders. However, due to the limited number of stalls available and the number of casual traders attending each day this is not always possible.

How and where do I pay my rent?
The rent is collected from the stalls on a daily basis. (Please ensure you have sufficient funds to pay on request).

Can I sell anything on the stall?
There are some restricted lines e.g. alcohol and cigarettes are not allowed on any of the daily markets.

In the Bull Ring Rag Market there are restrictions on the sale of material/fabric, net curtains and mobile phones and accessories. These restrictions are due to over-representation of these lines and the list is not exhaustive.

On the Bull Ring Open Market restricted lines are fruit and vegetables, Caribbean and Asian foods, although the list is not exhaustive.

Seasonal Restrictions - September to January: Greeting cards, wrapping paper, toys, jewellery, Christmas lines. Consideration may be given in these areas if the line is new to our Markets or under-represented.

Can I have a catering stall/pitch?
All allocated spaces for catering are taken. Therefore, we are not taking new catering traders at present.
