What’s the difference between a permanent trader and a casual trader?
Casual traders are not committed to trade on the market – they can pick and choose when they want to trade and pay only for the days they trade. Casual traders are subject to a higher market toll on the Thursday market. They are not guaranteed a pitch or a consistent pitch location. In the past, the Council has run a Market Loyalty Card Scheme and such initiatives are only open to permanent traders.

Traders can choose to be a permanent trader on a Thursday or a Saturday – or both. They are effectively making a committment to trade every Thursday and / or Saturday and pay a toll for every market. They are guaranteed a pitch in a consistent location. They benefit from two markets off per financial year per market day (two Thursdays if they are permanent on a Thursday and two Saturdays if they are permanent on a Saturday).age.
