All FOOD stalls enquiries MUST email us a menu and photos along with copies of public liability and any other relevant information prior to an appointment.
All JEWELLERY stalls enquiries MUST email the images of their products prior to an appointment.
The rest of the stalls do not need to book an appointment and there is no need to fill in any forms.
There is no need to bring any samples of your product for the initial meeting.
The Manager will decide if there is a place for you to trade and all traders are invited for a trial day where your stall will be assessed. There are no upfront charges.
Creative, Ethical and Made in Britain
Following the initial meeting with the Market manager, you may be invited back for a day’s trade where your stall will be assessed through exhibition. The assessment will be in accordance with the Creative, Ethical and Made in Britain Priority System, where the Market manager vets your goods, display and ambience created by your stall. Most importantly you will be assessed on the creative input into your product. UK designers/ makers and small creative businesses supporting ethical trade are rated most highly.
What we are looking for
Customers visit Sector 57 because they are looking for something bespoke. That something special might be a gift, meal or experience that is close to being unique and not widely available.
At your initial exhibition the Market Manager will be looking for:
Uniqueness of product
Creative input into product
An informative, creative and original display
Ethical sourcing/manufacturing process (e.g. recycled products, fair trade)
Customer education (information on the products visually and verbally available to customers)
Informed salesmanship (full knowledge of the processes involved in bringing the product to market)
Negative factors in assessment are:
Lack of creative input into product and display
Common product type
Please note that Sector57 does not offer exclusivity to any traders on the market but the Market manager will consider matters such as quality control and clash of stock when deciding whether to offer a new trader the opportunity to trade on a casual basis following the assessment.
