Apply for a stall at the redeveloped Bolton Market

The £4.5million redevelopment of Bolton Market is almost complete, and we’re now looking for quality traders to be part of the refurbished East Hall which will house home and lifestyle goods as well as a brand new food court area.

The multi-functional shop units will accommodate a range of product lines, but we specifically want to build on the market’s growing reputation for high quality food.

This is an exciting opportunity for new traders to be part of this award-winning market, so if you think you’ve got something interesting to add to the mix then send us an application.

Bolton Market Enterprise opportunities

Bolton Council is working in partnership with Bolton College and New Economy Manchester on an exciting pilot scheme offering you the opportunity to develop and test out your business ideas. If you've never started your own business or traded before, then this scheme might be for you. Two successful individuals will get the space and support to test their retail and other business ideas over a six month period, with free use of one of the 'Enterprise pods' container units which will be sited on the newly developed Bolton outdoor market. To express and interest or find out more contact 01204 333612 or email bolton.markets@bolton.gov.uk

How to become a trader

How do I book for one of the car boot/second hand markets?

These markets are very busy, so it’s advisable to book a stall in advance by calling 01204 336825 or by visiting the markets whilst they are open. Please note that there are different booking periods for the markets as shown above. You can simply turn up on the day but there is no guarantee that a stall will be available.

At Bolton Market the stalls are on the new outdoor market, however, they are undercover. When you book, you’ll will no longer be allocated a stall reference, stalls will be allocated on the day only.

You will be allocated one table with your stall but if you have a trestle table or clothes rail, you may bring them with you.

At Farnworth Market the stalls are outdoor but are undercover. When you book, you’ll be allocated a stall reference consisting of a number and letter which is displayed on the stall.

If you have any problems finding stalls please ask a member of staff who will be happy to assist.
