Bury’s Street Market’s – When King John issued a Market Charter here in 1201, little did he or anyone know that more than 800 years later this would still be one of the most successful traditional street markets in the country. In the 18th century, markets were divided into categories – horse market, butter and fish market, great market, herb market, beast market and the butchers shambles – where meat was prepared.
We are always looking for new interesting stalls for our market and can offer help, support and advise to new traders. All you need to start trading is a gazebo, public liability insurance and your stock – you are then ready to go. For certain products and new businesses we do have gazebos we can lend out and insurance for a year can start at £60.
If you are interested please contact Sharon Fairweather, Market Development Officer for further information.
