Young entrepreneurs from across the city are being invited to come and trade at York’s local heats for the National Market Traders’ Federation (NMTF) Young Traders’ Market. Each Sunday throughout June a series of Young Traders events will be taking place on Shambles Market with anyone aged between 16-30 eligible to apply to take part.


The heats give a chance for young entrepreneurs to showcase their business on Shambles Market – with the potential to go forward to represent York at the regional competition in Doncaster in July and go on to be crowned Young Trader of Year 2021 at the NMTF national event in August.


Shambles Market


The Young Traders Market celebrates all young entrepreneurs trading on our nation’s markets, festivals and fairs. Anyone aged between 16 and 30 is eligible to participate in the event, with both trading fees and insurance all covered for the competition day.


Phil Waines, Market Operations Executive at Make It York said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for any budding entrepreneurs and young business owners who are looking to showcase their skills. It’s a great chance to meet like-minded people, build confidence, and even go on to be crowned Young Trader of the Year 2021!


The competition is totally free to get involved in and it’s a great way for young traders to get in front of a new audience and kick start their business. We can’t wait to welcome young traders across the city to the heats at Shambles Market and see all the amazing talent of York’s young entrepreneurs.”


Anyone interested in being a part of the Young Traders Market should simply email by 31st May with details of their business.
