Lewisham market entrepreneurs wanted

Here's a smart cool initiative from Lewisham Council to recruit a new generation of market traders for Lewisham, Deptford and Catford:

New traders needed for first ever local markets fortnight Lewisham Council is calling all budding entrepreneurs to trade at its markets during the borough’s first ever local markets fortnight, which is set to run from Saturday 28 April to Saturday 12 May.

Local markets fortnight will celebrate the vibrancy and diversity of markets in Lewisham and local people will be encouraged to support local independent businesses in and around the borough’s three main street markets in Lewisham, Catford and Deptford High Street.

The Council wants to recruit up to 30 new and established traders to sell food, arts, crafts and second hand goods at a revitalised market at Catford Broadway during the weekend of Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 April and at Lewisham on Saturday 12 May. Subsidised stalls will be available, as well as business support and advice on trading.

To register your interest for a stall in Catford Broadway during the 28–29 April or Lewisham Market on 12 May contact 020 8314 2050 or email markets@lewisham.gov.uk by 30 March.
