Budding entrepreneurs are being given a chance by Wiltshire Council to sell their wares to the public at a special free market day next month.
Devizes Market Place will be hosting free market stalls for entrepreneurs looking to start new businesses, and for schools and charities to set up and sell their produce.
The event will be held on Friday June 29 during National Markets Fortnight when some 30 stalls will be available to individuals or groups, but those attracted to the enterprise need to sign up by June 15 to secure their stall.
Dick Tonge, cabinet member with responsibility for markets told Marlborough News Online: “This is a real opportunity for anyone out there who is wanting to start their own business to bring their goods and trade for free.”
“We would also encourage schools and charities to get involved and set up a stall giving the whole venture a real community feel.”
“The council is committed to a whole raft of measures to boost our county’s economic health and we hope as many would-be retailers as possible will get involved.”
Setting up of stalls will be from 8am with trading from 9am to 5pm. For more information and to book a stall please contact Tom Ince on 01380 734639.
