The North West regional final
winners at Bolton

The National Young Traders Market regional finals for 2023 kicked off in Bolton’s sunny city centre.
Bolton Market hosted the first of the 10 regional finals with 24 young traders who had been selected throughout the North West region in attendance.
Alongside these traders were four under-16 traders who demonstrated a high and impressive standard of professionalism and were awarded a certificate of excellence for their efforts, and we look forward to working with these young traders of the future to be part of the YTM campaign at 16.
The North West regional final showcased a good selection of products that included, hand made jewellery, Asian groceries, bakes and cakes (that sold out quickly), slime workshops, plants and arts and crafts.  With standards so high 11 young traders made it through to the National Final in August.
