Teenage Street Trading

New Milton Town Council successfully launched their first Teenage Market on 31st May.   There were four stalls run by teenagers alongside the existing market stalls at the Weekly Wednesday Market. The idea is to encourage budding entrepreneurs and to help them gain skills and an understanding of the retail business industry.  There is no charge to the young people for the use of the stall.

They mostly make the  goods for their stalls.   Recently this consisted of cakes, knitted crafts, bath bombs and second hand items.   They researched prices and took time to display their stall attractively, to maximise potential sales, as well as engaging with their customers.

The Teenage Street Trading is affiliated to the national Teenage Market brand.   The market stalls available for teenagers will initially only be available during the school holidays. Young people are also encouraged to busk on these days, giving a festival ambience to the street market.

Anyone interested in having a stall or in busking, please contact the Youth Coordinator at New Milton Town Council on telephone 01425 619120 or email  New Milton Town Council.
