Have you got a small home-based business that you want to expand?
We offer pop-up stalls at our monthly Braintree Street Market to help start-ups bring their products to a new audience.
The small market stalls are available to hire, with starting rates of just £11 per event. This means talented crafters, home bakers and new sellers can test the market, see how their products sell and manage their price points without having to invest in a gazebo.
The owner of Jule’s Jewels started her business from home during Covid as a way of boosting her income. She sells bags, purses, gifts and seasonal decorations.
She said: "I started selling on Facebook. I would really like a shop but I cannot afford that.
"These are really affordable, I only pay £11. I don't have a high turn-over or profit margin so this is perfect."
She added: "I like coming out and meeting people and if I sell then it is a bonus."
Cllr Tom Cunningham, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth said: “We are proud to support small and burgeoning businesses within Braintree District and would welcome anyone who has a new venture to join us at Braintree Street Market.
“The pop-ups give people a chance to meet their buyers and see what products are popular while also getting feedback on pricing and future ideas.”
