Love Your Local Market
3rd May 2013

Budding entrepreneurs can still test the market for their new big idea on one of South Kesteven's markets for just a tenner. Business interest in the opportunity available at Grantham, Stamford and Bourne markets has been high so make sure you don't miss your chance to grab a stall.

The initiative is part of South Kesteven District Council taking part in the national Love Your Market campaign during the fortnight of May 15-29.

To qualify stall holders must be new rather than existing market traders. The offer is available in Grantham on Saturday May 18, in Bourne on Thursday 23rd and in Stamford on Friday 24th.

Leader of the Council, Cllr Linda Neal said: "Interest has been good and we took stall bookings within minutes of announcing the opportunity. "This offer has to be subject to availability so we urge those interested to book as soon as possible. "The only thing we ask is that public liability insurance is in force and food traders must hold relevant food hygiene certificates."

Allocations will be made on a first-come-first-served basis and preference will be given to first time traders and those who offer something unique or unusual. Cllr Neal added: "We are making the events really special. We are inviting the stallholders to dress themselves and their stall in pink and we will give a free stall to the winner.

"There will also be a Treasure Hunt in Grantham and Stamford when youngsters will collect letters from stalls which will form a word that will direct them to the prize."

To apply for a stall email or call 01476 406153 by Wednesday May 8.
