SORRY - We are limiting food stalls.
We are a second hand market, so we are a destination to buy bargins. We have three cafes bordering the market and two more within one minute walk providing ample choices for eat on sitefood. The same applies to fruit and vegetables. We have two fruit and vegetable shops, as well as two supermarkets bordering the market. Combine that with the seven fruit and vegetable stall's who are at the market 48 weeks of the year and we are providing more than enough options. If any stallholders leave, we have no intention at this stage to replacing them.
If you wish to sell takeaway foods or bottled items, please apply to firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you are eligible. You will need an A grade food license, fire extinguisher and a 120 wheelie bin.

If you are wishing to sell food as a fundraiser or an existing food vendor, you will need approval from us first and will be required to follow the regulations outlined below.
Food stall holders are required under council regulations to provide a suitable rubbish receptacle for clients. (60ltr bin or bag usually)
Food stall holders must provide a rubbish bin for market patrons use and take the rubbish with them when they leave the market.'
As customers move between stalls they will deposit rubbish from other stalls in your bin. Do not get upset, because where does your customers rubbish end up? In other stall holders rubbish bins.
If you are using a gas cooker or BBQ, you need to provide an extinguisher suitable for a class C and F fire. This will be either a BE dry powder (black band) or a wet chemical (beige band) fire extinguisher or a fire blanket, as a minimum. If you are boiling water only, a white band (ABE powder) extinguisher is OK.
