Once you agree to the rules please sign the agreement and return it to the Contact address shown on the left. We will need to see your Certificate of Public Liability Insurance before trading. You can either provide a copy via the post or bring it with you on the first day of trading. We will keep the copy for our records. To make it easy for small scale entrepreneurs to attend, we provide stalls for all markets. When booking please make it clear if you require electricity. Booking for stalls for all markets must be accompanied by advance payment. Contact the Market Manager (see left) if you require a stall larger than 10 x 10 ft.

Alnwick Markets aim is to work with our traders to develop the markets and continually increase the number of customers coming every week. Alnwick Markets has a strategy in order to achieve this aim. Some key points of the strategy include:
• Publicity and adverts in the local & regional press.
• Website detailing when the markets are on.
• Music and activities in the marketplace.
• Leaflets distributed to Tourist Information Centres, hospitality providers and tourist fairs.
• Seasonal themes to markets including Christmas and Easter markets on a Saturday and seasonally themed Farmers' markets. Participation through stall decoration and seasonal products are important to their success.
Through our market research, it has been established that Saturday, Thursday & Farmers' markets attract several thousand people into the market place and a typical conversion rate (the number of actual shoppers compared to the number of people passing through the market) is 30%. Most of the customers come from Alnwick and the surrounding area and over 50% of the customers come every week. They are drawn to the market by its great atmosphere, fresh produce available, and the idea of getting a bargain.
You can now download the latest market research carried out for each market in 2013 here:
In order to trade at the Farmers' Market, food and drink should be grown, reared, caught, brewed, baked or processed by the stallholder. This also applies to crafts stalls, where the stallholder should also be the producer and local materials should be used where possible.
