Trade at a market

Weekly markets

Braintree and Witham are two historic market towns, both with traditional style markets every week set in the heart of the town centres.

We’re looking for enthusiastic traders to join our markets community, either on a Wednesday or Saturday, or both. You’ll be surrounded by local heritage, shops and churches, and also is a chance to build networks and partnerships with the business community, including residents and visitors.
