Market Catering

Market Catering - At Daily, Weekly or Farmers Markets


What is market catering?

Markets offer opportunities for catering businesses to benefit from regular work on an established pitch. Many markets in the UK have been in existence in one form or another for hundreds of years; many UK towns and cities were founded and grew around their market, like Market Harborough and Birmingham.

Most markets have some opportunities for food traders, regardless of their main focus. In recent years food-to-go has begun to play a greater role in provision at markets and has started a bit of a renaissance in the market industry.
