Eastleigh Market looking for traders

Eastleigh Market Place has recently received a £600k facelift which has re-invented the market area into an exciting environment offering space for more than 50 traders. The revamp has included resurfacing the area, new electric points, lighting and street furniture bringing a modern feel to the traditional market at the heart of the Town.
The Market operates from 9am to 4pm on Thursdays and Saturdays and has already seen an increase in traders and footfall due to the regeneration efforts from Eastleigh Borough Council. However, the Market is still looking for new traders to fill this expanded area, offering a 3x3m pitch for just £22.50 which includes the use of electric and waste disposal. For a limited time only, new traders can take advantage of an introductory offer by paying for three days trade to receive three days free. Business support and advice can also be offered to help traders get started or for existing traders to expand their business. Registered charities are also entitled to a free 3x3m pitch. Gazebos are also available for use.
Situated next to the recreation ground which hosts Eastleigh’s iconic bandstand, there are often community events, performances and activities also going on, bringing a great atmosphere to the Town centre. As well as this, there is a kid’s playground and ample parking nearby.
The Council has a dedicated Communications team that work hard to publicise the market in all of their extensive promotions campaigns, including the Borough News that reaches every household in the Borough, which is a population of 125k.
With two local train stations, bus routes and even an airport nearby, Eastleigh is a bustling Town Centre that is quickly becoming the place to shop and the place to trade.
