6 Top tips to finding markets to suit your products

Traders- Hints & Tips | At the Market

Finding markets as a stallholder….read on.

We know it can be tricky to find markets and even though we try our hardest to list as many markets as possible not all of them are perfect fit for us BUT they could work well for you!

  • Check out our market timeline on Pedddle
  • Click the market logo at the top of the page to see what other events the organisers lists.
  • Search via date
  • Search via location (or both!)

Is there an art to finding markets?

Not really, just be persistent and a little strategic. Look in places that you are likely to find your kind of markets.

Our founder Nicki has recorded a one minute ‘short’ YouTube clip to share her top tips.

Write markets down and keep track of how they are going.

If you want to access some useful market day support materials for free then sign up to our stallholder newsletter to have them sent you.

Finding markets and visiting them is a great way to actually see if that market could work for you! Speak with other stallholders there and generally get a feel for the market.

Connect with the organiser and support them (like, comment and share posts) on social media.

As a Pedddle member you can also get access to our spreadsheet of markets. These are markets that might not necessarily be listed on Pedddle yet but we know that they run and we leave the rest to you!

We always say as a rule of thumb give a market 3 tries before making a call on the event- maybe at different times of the year or consecutively. Customers need to build up trust. The other thing to bear in mind – if it doesn’t work for you it might just not be good for you. Be cautious about passing judgement that it’s not a good market.
