Young Traders Market 2021

The Young Traders Market programme aims to encourage young entrepreneurs aged 16-30 to use markets as a platform to start or grow their business.

Running for nine years the programme starts with local young trader markets across the UK and then regional finals. At each stage the best of the best are put through and the programme culminates at the National Final where one trader will be awarded the title of National Young Trader of the Year.


As COVID-19 restrictions are cautiously lifted the NMTF is now as certain as it can be that the full Young Traders Market 2021 will go ahead.
