Traders and Stalls

Are you interested in having a stall at our seasonal market events?
Spaces for stalls will be allocated based on individual merit. We endeavour not to duplicate stalls in order to provide variety and uniqueness to our visitors. The closing date for applications for each of the markets are:

Spring Fair – 25th March 2022

Holker Fest – 1st July 2022

Winter Markets – 26th August 2022 

There are forms for both traders and food outlets (anyone selling hot or cold food/drink that is to be consumed straight away) so please do ensure you fill the correct form out for your stall. Due to the last few years, we will be in touch closer to each event date to request payment for your stand. All our bank details are noted on all the attached forms.

Spring Fair – 7th & 8th May 2022 

The Spring Fair will take place in the Courtyard and Piazza and will include a variety of quality stalls, lively entertainment and local foods. This year will see the return of our ‘Fun Dog Show’! It went down a storm last year and we are intending to build on the success once again! As ever, we are looking to incorporate all things gardening and outdoors so are encouraging as many plant/flower/garden stalls as possible to join – please do spread the word!

Applications for the Spring Fair are now closed. 

Holker Fest – 3rd & 4th September 2022

This year sees our beloved Chilli Fest take on a little revamp. Do not fear – the Chilli Eating competition will still take place at the end of the day, however, we are giving things a little shake up and are creating more of a family-friendly carnival feel to our mid-summer event. There will be plenty of fun for all the family but we, of course, couldn’t do this without the splendour of artisans such as you! 2021 saw our busiest and most diverse set of stallholders yet and we are hoping to continue to build on this!

Winter Markets – 4th, 5th & 6th November 2022

The Holker Winter Market has steadily grown over the last 18 years and 2021 saw the greatest footfall of over 9000 visitors across the 3 days.

We provide a wide variety of crafts, foods, gifts etc and each stand space is allocated on individual merit. It’s the perfect way to kickstart the festive season! As we are usually oversubscribed, we would be most grateful if you could return the completed application form as soon as possible.
