South Cambridgeshire District Council launch two directories, developing a network of markets for shoppers whilst supporting local businesses and ensuring a rich and more diverse choice of products

Traders and market organisers are being urged to apply online to join the directories which list established or newly launched markets and the details of individual stallholders.

Both listings are available on the South Cambridgeshire District Council website and dovetail with the Council’s new Street Trading Policy, which came into effect on March 1, 2022. The policy aims to ensure the same standards apply to street vendors across the district whilst the needs of local residents are considered and shoppers are protected in relation to food hygiene, safety and other important areas.

To expand the district’s offering, the Council has visited existing markets to explore how they are run and who by, gather data and gauge the mood for the establishment and expansion of more markets across South Cambridgeshire in a post-Covid landscape. Its new markets toolkit will help anyone thinking about setting up a market in their village, while the online trader directory will act as a platform to connect traders with local markets and other like-minded businesses.
