Leeds Kirkgate Market and Hammerson, the owners of Victoria Leeds (Victoria Quarter and Victoria Gate) are pleased to announce The Teenage Market will return to the events space on Saturday 16 June between 10.00am and 4.00pm.

As part of the National Market Traders Federation’s (NMTF) National Youth Market competition, up to four Teenage Market attendees will be selected from the youth market to trade at the first ever Yorkshire Regional Youth Market which will be held at Kirkgate Market on 1 August (Yorkshire Day).

Top traders from the youth market can go on to be nominated to trade at the National Youth Market – market champions run by the NMTF, which takes place in Stratford-upon-Avon on Friday, 31 August and Saturday, 1 September 2018. With an award for ‘Young Trader of the Year’ and four highly commended awards. Each award as cash prizes and free NMTF membership for one year.

The National Youth Market celebrates young entrepreneurs trading on our nation’s markets, festivals and fairs. The Youth Market provides the opportunity for young people to test out, launch, and grow a business.

It is a collaborative approach to nurturing young talent, advocating market trading as a business model, and encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to trade on traditional retail markets.
