Dereham Market - New Trader Scheme

Are you new to market trading, with a business less than one year old, and would like to trade on Dereham Tuesday or Friday Market?  Then this opportunity is for you!


Dereham Town Council are offering 3 x 18-25 year-olds and 3 x over 25 year-olds the chance to apply for a pitch on Dereham Market, with 3 months free rent!


The Town Council understand that the first year of any business can be the most important and the most difficult, and therefore want to do our part to help traders in the local community, whilst also increasing the vibrancy of the markets and what is on offer.


Dereham Market is held twice weekly, on a Tuesday and Friday, in the Market Place and Church Street.  The Market has been recognised as far back as 1388 and has been at the heart of the town ever since, offering a wide range of products and services to locals and visitors alike.  Many of the traders have been with the market for over 30 years and are very much a part of what makes it great.


We’d love you to join us!  The scheme will be run on a first come first served basis, so apply now to avoid disappointment!
