Before becoming a market trader and running your market stall you should know exactly what a market traders job profile entails
It has never been easier to become a market trader and trade with Town and Country Markets. From market stalls and carboot sales to shop units.
Market traders are the ultimate entrepreneurs. They sell a variety of products and services to the general public while providing an excellent shopping experience. The types of products offered by these individuals range from fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables to clothes and jewellery.
Becoming a market trader requires a person to have good management skills and an eye for detail as well as a willingness to work long hours. These individuals typically began working before most of their friends and neighbours are even out of bed and often stay until long after most of the population has finished working for the day. Depending on the market, a market trader may operate every day, a few days a week or weekends only. Of course, it is ultimately up to the trader to decide when and how often they want to work, depending on which market they trade on.
Any person interested in becoming a market trader should also spend some time finding the market that is the best fit for the products or services that they are going to offer. How much it is going to cost to operate a market stall is going to depend on the size of the stall as well as which market the trader is operating out of.
