Chance to set out your stall at a reduced cost


With Love Your Local Markets Fortnight taking place between May 13 and May 27, East Lindsey District Council wants to hear from people who are keen to run their own market stall and have an idea of what they’d like to sell.

Up to 12 budding entrepreneurs will be given the chance to join the markets at Spilsby, Horncastle and Louth, with free Public Liability Insurance for 12 market days and 12 market days rent for the price of 10 to help them get started.

Markets Manager Esther Belton, said; “If you have a business idea that you would like to trial, a market stall is a fantastic way to test the water and see if people like your products for a relatively small start up cost.”

“Over the years we have seen numerous market traders progress to their own shop premises after a successful start trading on markets.”

To apply for one of the 12 positions, visit and download and return the application form by May 1, 2015. A panel will select up to 12 applicants who will start trading during Love Your Local Markets Fortnight.
