Why not visit one of our Markets?

Wayne Sheehan, Markets Supervisor - 8th February 2017

Market trading has formed the backbone of on street vibrancy throughout the country for centuries and Hereford is no exception.
The range of markets that take place in the city centre are loved by locals and visitors alike, with a wide selection of stalls and bargains to be had.
Hereford markets are situated in the busy pedestrianised city centre area of High Town and Commercial Street, with some themed markets such as ‘Produce & Craft’, ‘Garden’, and ‘Antique’ based events, all taking place on a regular basis. A more general selection of product types can be found on the thrice weekly ‘Retail’ market, held every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
You can also find exciting street food at the Retail market, so if you fancy a taste of the orient or a range of bratwursts, we’ve got it covered. Not forgetting those traders who pride themselves on using the best of local ingredients, there are always options to suit both the tastebuds and the pocket!
Our range of Christmas markets have always been firm favourites for both traders and the public, with something special about browsing for gifts with a glass of mulled wine in the hand.

Market Trading as a career.
Market trading is an excellent low cost way of dipping your toe into the world of trade and commerce, without taking the expensive risk of renting and maintaining premises.
 You can choose to trade on just one of the days or more, with the flexibility to work around other commitments you may have. The Markets team will put up a heavy duty gazebo style 3m x 3m stall and can also supply tables for trading. All you have to do is dress and stock the stall. No contracts, no hassle and no risk.
‘New starter’ deals are now available to aid you in getting up and running with a stall on the market.
Not only can market trading be lucrative, it can be fun too as you interact with the public and your fellow traders, providing a real sense of vibrancy outside in the fresh air.
If you have thought about being your own boss, enjoy meeting people and think you’ve got an attractive idea for a product range, market trading could be an excellent business opportunity for you.
Why not contact the Markets team for an informal chat and see if it could be the right choice for you?
