Young Traders Competition as Leighton-Linslade Town Council marks ten years of running market

Leighton Buzzard Market will be holding its first ever Young Traders Competition on Tuesday, May 31.

Wednesday, 18th May 2022, 5:36 pm

Open to all young business owners aged 16 – 30, the Young Traders Competition is part of the National Young Trader of the Year campaign run by the National Market Traders Federation (NMTF) to support the market traders of the future.

The winner of the local heat will be put forward to the regional final in July then hopefully onto the national final – the winner of which will receive £500 cash, the prestigious trophy and a mobile credit card terminal from sponsors Multipay.

The stalls will be judged by the NMTF, who will be visiting on the day. Stalls cost £15 for the event.
