Our 'Be Your Own Boss' scheme is designed to give you all the help you need to set up as a first time market trader. Supported by the National Market Traders Federation (NMTF), we are offering you the opportunity to start your own retail business in a prime city centre location.
This offer applies to business premises in the Market Hall, subject to there being a variety of goods for customers and to stall letting for a minimum of a year.
When you start your own business in one of our markets, you will be surrounded by experienced market traders who will be happy to offer advice and support.
You will receive a 50% rent reduction for the first seven months on a fixed 12 month tenancy agreement. You will also be allowed to trade for five days rent free. (Please note that if you end your tenancy before the 12 month period you will need to pay back any rent reduction that you have received. Service charge and rates will still apply.)
You can join the scheme for as little as £112, including the following great benefits:
Anyone over the age of 18 who is interested in starting their own business and being their own boss.

Derby City Council has the right to refuse any application, vary terms and cancel the offer at any time. Financial references will be taken for applicants. Although established traders can not apply for the Derby City Council seven months 50% rent reduction and 'Be Your Own Boss' scheme, we would accept applications from established traders who wish to relocate to one of our city centre market retail units. Full rent, rates and service charge fees apply but often market retail unit charges are much less than those for units in other city centre retail locations. Units can cost as little as £307 a month for the rent, rates and service charge. It can be less than this if you are eligible for rates relief.
Please contact the Derby Markets Team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about the scheme, or about simply renting a unit in Derby Market Hall or at Allenton Market.
