Young trader markets


Great Yarmouth Borough Council is a partner within a European-funded scheme called Go Trade. Within that project, the National Market Traders Federation (NMTF) (opens new window) is working with local authorities to improve local marketplaces by attracting young entrepreneurs. 

We are looking for young people aged between 18 and 30 who may be interested in setting up a market stall as part of the Young Trader Market (YTM) Scheme.

Each year the NMTF runs a national competition as part of its Young Trader Market programme. The Young Traders Market programme aims to encourage young entrepreneurs to use markets as a platform to start or grow their business. Running for nine years, the programme starts with local young trader markets across the UK and then regional finals. At each stage the best of the best are put through and the programme culminates at the national final, where one trader will be awarded the title of National Young Trader of the Year. 

Anyone, of any age, can join our market with access to FREE business support to start their business as a casual trader; if a new trader falls within the age bracket for the NMTF's programme, they would be entitled to participate as part of this competition, with access to additional support and discounts offered directly by NMTF. For more information email
