Trade at a market

Street markets

The successful monthly Street Market is for local residents and visitors near and far who come together to discover a variety of street food from the latest tasty Beigels and Thai food to chutneys, pickles, cheeses and sweet treats. Come and taste some of the finest beers, spirits and wines in the area or have a drink at the bar or browse the many different gift stalls, clothing and craft stalls.

We always like to hear from new traders that would like to join our Braintree market community. Are you a ‘small crafter or maker’?  Do you have something unique to sell? Do you live within Braintree District? Are you rurally located? We’re looking for enthusiastic new traders and businesses to trade with us. So, if you think you fit the bill, we’d love for you to join us. If you are interested in trialling one of our monthly street market dates, drop us an email and get in touch! We have a limited amount of BDC pop up stalls, that are perfect for those that would like to have a go at trading directly on the high street!

Please email for further information.
