30 September 2014 – Teenage markets

There is an interactive website aimed at teenage market traders. The platform was set up by brothers Tom and Joe Barrett after the first successful market was held in Stockport in 2012, where they worked with market manager Paul Downs, as one way of revitalising the town’s local market.

The concept is described on the website like this:
The Teenage Market is the perfect opportunity for markets to connect with their town’s large population of young people, by providing a free platform for them to be entrepreneurial, try out a new a business idea and sell creative products…The Teenage Market gives young people who are already trading online, a chance to trade at their local market.

Live music and performance is also part of the market experience, as is food and drink.
