Newark Teenage Market

We are delighted to announce Newark’s first ever Teenage Market- a market specifically for young ambitious entrepreneurs to experience market trading and showcase their abilities and skills.

Newark Town and District Councils, in conjunction with the nationally renowned Teenage Market Company will be holding the market at the Wharf car park on Sunday 19th September 2021, 10am to 4pm. Our mission is for this new venture to become a regular event in the Newark and Sherwood district providing an opportunity to young people to have a first FREE taste of market trading.

There will also be the possibility of being able to apply for a long term pitch at Newark’s regular markets held in the nearby Market Place, one of the largest, oldest and most panoramic in the UK.

The Wharf site is alongside the stunning ruins of the town’s castle, steeped in Civil War history – Newark is THE “Gateway to the North” and home to the National Civil War Centre, and also boasts a wide range of high quality independent shops and eating places.
To support the Market there will be brilliant music and succulent street food.

The day itself will see not only the Teenage Market but also the highly popular Dragon Boat Race on the adjacent river. This event sees teams of up to ten rowers in 30 foot boats racing to support local charities - Beaumond House and the Newark Children’s Bereavement Centre.

Bookings are now being taken for the 15 stalls available at the market. Stalls are free of charge, the deadline is 1st September 2021. Please apply to Ian Harrison – ian.harrison@newark.gov.uk .

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. If you need any further information please contact Ian, anytime, on 07891 057812

Please come along and help make this unique event for teenagers the first of many!
