Get your own Grantham market stall for just £10

Grantham’s market should be buzzing with activity this month as budding entrepreneurs take advantage of the district council-backed “Love Your Market” campaign.

The national campaign runs from a fortnight from May 15 to May 29 with people able to take advantage of the scheme in Grantham on May 18.

To qualify stall holders must be new rather than existing market traders.

Leader of the South Kesteven District Council Coun Linda Neal said: “Interest has been good and we took stall bookings within minutes of announcing the opportunity.

“This offer has to be subject to availability so we urge those interested to book

as soon as possible.

“The only thing we ask is that public liability insurance is in force and food traders must hold relevant food hygiene certificates.”

Allocations will be made on a first-come-first-served basis and preference will be given to first time traders and those who offer something unique or unusual.

Coun Neal added: “We are making the events really special. We are inviting the stallholders to dress themselves and their stall in pink and we will give a free stall to the winner.

“There will also be a Treasure Hunt in Grantham and Stamford where youngsters will collect letters from stalls which will form a word that will direct them to the prize.”

To apply for a stall email lovemarkets@southkesteven.gov.uk or call 01476 406153 by Wednesday May 8.
