Calling all market stall holders

Small Business Saturday takes place this year on December 2, and this is your chance to be involved in FSB Manchester & North Cheshire’s plans. We’re working with Rochdale’s Exchange Shopping Centre to help deliver a festive market for craft and novelty stall holders who'd like to run a pitch at a winter market in the heart of Rochdale's bustling shopping district. You'll have a pitch in one of the walkways which line the indoor mall, on what’s likely to be the busiest shopping day of the year, and where you’ll be able to sell your craft stall wares and unusual gifts to the passing general public. Small Business Saturday is about celebrating entrepreneurial spirit and grass roots businesses. You can take part as a trader for FREE, but you will be asked to pay a refundable deposit of £20 on Eventbrite - refunded by you turning up on the day. You will require: a table to sell your products from; public liability insurance (usually about £40); a small float; and enough stock to last a busy day.
