Our pitch fees are £65 for a 3m x 3m stall and £125 for a 6m x 3m stall.
Pitch fees must be paid 10 working days before market day in order to secure your pitch otherwise it will be offered to other traders on our waiting list.
As well as paying your fees, we’ll sign a simple market licence contract with you. We also need to be provided with you public liability insurance details showing cover of at least £2m.
You need to bring your own stand and stall equipment which must have a professional appearance.
If you are using a gazebo, it needs to be sturdy and suitable for a market. Garden gazebos are not acceptable. You must also bring good weights which will secure the gazebo from gusts of wind. If you do not have the right equipment, we can ask you to leave the market before we open.
We encourage all traders to take credit or debit cards rather than cash so please bring a credit card terminal / point of sale.
And be prepared for all weathers!
The flower market has around 35 – 55 pitches. There is a waiting list and some traders are asked to rotate so that as many people as possible get a chance. Priority is given to local businesses, those with high sustainability criteria, and those who bring something different to the market. All stallholders need to meet a minimum standard of appearance – and we are happy to help novice traders with getting their stand just right for market day.
You’ll be given an arrival time to come to the market to set up your stall. This is normally between 7am and 8am.
When you arrive, you’ll be told where your pitch is and asked to unload. We’ll let you know where you can park once you have unloaded. You stall needs to be ready to trade from when we open and you need to be open and trading until the market closes.
When the market closes, we ask you to take down your stall and then collect your vehicle to load up and leave. You must leave your pitch clean and without rubbish otherwise we will charge for cleaning.
The market opens 9.00am to 3.30pm during the summer months and from 9.30am to 3.30pm in winter.

We champion sustainability practices, therefore no single use plastic bags should be used unless biodegradable. All traders providing bags must use paper or biodegradable bags. We encourage all visitors to bring their own bags and traders must do the same. Jute bags are available to buy providing a sustainable alternative for visitors who have not brought their own bag.
The overuse of peat is harmful to the environment and so we ask that all growing medium be peat-free, or with reduced peat content.
We undertake a risk assessment of the market to ensure a safe environment for all visitors, traders and volunteers. We ensure the market is compliant with government guidance on best practice for a Covid-19 safe environment. Traders are asked to comply with such practices.
While the government has removed any legal Covid restrictions such as wearing masks, keeping social distancing or hand sanitising, we recommend all traders to provide hand gel at their Market stalls. We will appreciate, especially if the market is crowded, that all traders consider using these sensible precautions.
