Haverhill Young Market Trader Competition Saturday 16 July 2022


We are looking for young entrepreneurs, aged 16-30, who would like to trial an idea, turn a hobby into a business or have a skill to share and make some money along the way!

As part of the National Association of Market Traders nationwide competition we will be hosting a local heat in Haverhill on Saturday 16 July 2022, 9am to 4pm, with the regional final being held in Bury St Edmunds.

The winner and the four category winners from the local heat will be invited to trade at the regional final which are being held in Bury on Wednesday 27 July. The regional final is organised by the National Market Trader Federation who will judge the regional event, and the winner and category winners will be invited to the National event which is being held in Stratford Upon Avon on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 August 2022.
