Stone Cross Market, located in the Town Centre will be joining over 700 markets across the country by taking part in Love Your Local Market and are offering two days of free pitches aimed at attracting new traders and businesses to the market.
Started in 2012 amidst fears around the sustainability of our nation’s high streets, Love Your Local Market participants have staged over 4,000 events and this year Stone Cross Market shall be highlighting the importance that the market plays for both local residents and traders.
Stone Cross Market offers a flexible trading environment suitable to a range of existing and new businesses; whether you are a traditional market trader, looking to try something new or just want to reach new customers, market trading provides a direct opportunity to promote your goods or services.
To encourage new traders, Harlow Council will be offering all its pitches, free of charge on both Thursdays during Love Your Local Market fortnight, and this will apply to both existing and new traders at Stone Cross Market.
Graham Wilson OBE, chief executive of the National Association of British Market Authorities says: “Love Your Local Market is the biggest market event in a generation. It gives people the chance of a new career and demonstrates how important the market is to the local community.
“With the financial backing of the government and our headline sponsor HMY Radford we intend to make Love Your Local Market 2014 once again the biggest and best markets campaign UK has ever seen.”
