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 visitor. The closing date for applications for each of the markets are:
Spring Fair – 29th March
Chilli Fest – 2nd July
Winter Markets – 17th September
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 year, 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 – 1st & 2nd May
The Spring Fair will take place in the Courtyard and Piazza and will include a variety a quality stalls, lively entertainment and local foods. This year we are looking to incorporate all things gardening and outdoors so are encouraging as many plant/flower/garden stalls as possible to join. As well as this we are going to be hosting Holker’s very own ‘Fun Dog Show’. There will be a variety of categories to enter your dog into such as ‘waggiest tail’ and ‘best paw shake’ so please do get involved!
We have now closed off entries to our Spring Fair as we are fully booked. We will be running a waiting list if you still wish to apply. Please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office on 015395 58328.
Chilli Fest – 4th & 5th September
After the only market event we were able to run in 2020, we are thrilled that our Chilli Fest returns for 2021. Many chilli vendors alongside other food styles both adapted for the chilli lover or hater, stalls offering handmade items, live entertainment and of course the chilli eating competition. Last year was the best attended Chilli Fest we have had and we are hoping to make 2021 even better!

Winter Markets – 5th, 6th & 7th November
The Holker Winter Market has steadily grown over the last 16 years and 2019 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. As we are usually oversubscribed, we would be most grateful if you could return the completed application form as soon as possible.
