Become a Barrow Trader

The barrows are here to help potential trader’s trial new products, including home-made and craft type products, in Leeds Market.

We understand that trying out new products and services can be perceived as a risky venture in an untested environment. We are therefore offering the barrows on flexible hiring terms and low prices to encourage new traders.

What we are looking for

We are looking for traders who can bring something different and unique to the market, be it products and/or services. The traditional barrows can be hired at £15 (Ex VAT) from Monday to Thursday, £25 (Ex VAT) for Fridays and Saturdays. Deals are available for week long bookings.

We have four barrows in total:

  • Barrow 1 (Canopy) – Length 182 cm x Width 91cm = Total surface area 1.66 M2
  • Barrow 2 (Open) - Length 190 cm x Width 93cm = Total surface area 1.77 M2
  • Barrow 3 (Open) - Length 184 cm x Width 110cm = Total surface area 2.02 M2
  • Barrow 4 (Hay) - Length 183 cm x Width 95cm = Total surface area 1.74 M2

There a limited number of barrows, and they are proving quite popular!

If you are interested in this opportunity and want to secure one we recommend you complete the Barrow Trader application form (PDF, 117KB) and provide as many of the dates you want as possible.
