Our young entrepreneurs campaign
for 16 to 30-year-olds is bouncing back for 2022

IT’S on again — and the NMTF Young Traders Market 2022 promises to be even bigger and better than ever.
The NMTF has spent a decade concentrating on attracting new blood into the retail markets industry.
Over the years many young people who have dipped their collective toes into the water have gone on to become full-time market traders.

Now, post-pandemic, it is vital that we have traders out there who will continue to support the industry. And, of course, support the industry by creating and selling products that both young and older shoppers will want to buy. A major social media campaign continues  to attract young entrepreneurs — aged between 16 and 30 — to take part in the campaign, with the ambition to win through to the National Final, once more being held at the magnificent Waterside in Stratford-upon-Avon on the bank holiday weekend Friday and Saturday August 26 and 27.

As well as a prestigious trophy the overall winner will receive £500 cash, and a mobile credit card terminal from our sponsors Multipay. We are also encouraging market operators to stage local events that can act as a springboard to the main regional and national events.
