Markets Apply to be a market trader

Specialist markets

Specialist markets take place throughout the year selling art, crafts, unique gifts or food and drink.

If you would like to apply for any of our specialist markets you must first apply to be entered onto our specialist markets database. If you’re successful, you will then be eligible to receive application forms for any of our events throughout the year if they are suitable for the goods you sell.

Please refer to the Specialist market selection policy for further information.  A stall will cost from £40 to £4,000 depending on size and time occupied.

Our specialist markets portfolio includes:

We target markets at different levels of food and craftsmanship depending on the location and target audience. Registrations are assessed for quality, suitability to the Manchester specialist markets, original design, skilful and novel use of materials. 

Following Britain's decision to exit from the European Union we would like to assure our European traders that this does not affect your participation in our markets.

If the process of leaving the European Union affects any of our processes in the future, we will let you know as soon as we are aware.

Alternatively, you can download the appropriate form and post to us.
