Sunday car boot and market - regular occupancy

  1. Eugo Logo

  2. Summary

    If you want to use the same trading space every week and avoid the daily casual allocation you will need to apply for a licence agreement.

    Casual trading spaces at the New Smithfield Sunday Car Boot & Market are allocated on a first come, first served basis so all you need to do is turn up on Sunday and join the queue at the back of the market.

    Please note: this does not include the sale of fresh food (e.g. catering units, ice-cream vans or butchers meat) which is restricted to licences.

  3. Fees

    A reservation charge of £120.00 + VAT per space is payable before completion of the licence agreement and issue of the early entry permit.

    Market occupancy charges will also apply.

    Applications will be processed within two weeks, but this could take as long as eight weeks where the vacant space is subject to specific advertising timescales.
