Trade at a market

Join our markets

We are always looking for great businesses to help us expand our weekly Wednesday and Saturday Traditional Braintree market. Plus our weekly Saturday, Traditional Witham market. Not forgetting the succesful monthly Braintree Street Market.

We are working to create markets with interesting high-quality stalls giving the public a great experience they can't get anywhere else.

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, young entrepreneurs 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 either our weekly Traditional Market or one of our monthly Street Market dates, drop us an email and get in touch! 

For more information please email streetmarket@braintree.gov.uk
