Northampton Borough Council is keen to help and support new traders on its Historic Market Square and is currently offering grants to encourage new lines.
Northampton Market Square is considered by many to be one of the most attractive and impressive Market Squares in England, being surrounded by many interesting buildings such as Welsh House, Beethoven House and Victoria House. It dates from 1235 when Henry III forbade the selling of goods in the churchyard of All Saints and ordered that the Market be moved to a space north of the churchyard, its present site.
Through its long history, Northampton Market Square, has seen many changes but still remains the focal point of Northampton town centre. Many of our 70+ traders have been with us for over 20, 30 and 40 years and remain loyal to the market. It is a place where people shop, enjoying the atmosphere, the variety of stalls, the ‘characters’ and a bargain. We also have a large programme of events every year including a Beach, Armed Forces Day, Harley Davidson Run, monthly Antiques Markets and Diwali celebrations.
If you are an existing market trader trading elsewhere or are thinking of setting up a new business, or to complement an existing business – Northampton Market will be pleased talk to you about what you have to offer and how we can help you.
