Markets Manager Esther Belton, said; "If you have a business idea that you would like to trial, a market stall is a fantastic way to test the water and see if people like your products for a relatively small start-up cost.

"Whatever you want to sell, whether it be food, handmade items or something totally new and innovative, our markets are a great way to meet potential customers and receive some great feedback to help in shaping your business.

"Over the years we have seen numerous market traders progress to their own shop premises after a successful start trading on markets."
