Traders are being invited to apply for stalls in a newly developed open market.

The market in Brighton’s London Road is set to open in November with space for 45 permanent stalls.

Plot sizes vary from 140 square foot to 437 sq ft with the average rent £15.50 per sq ft per year.

Temporary stalls, measuring 8ft by 4ft, are available from £20 a day.

The market will provide traders with CCTV, full-time cleaners, toilets, waste disposal and regular advertising.

It will be run by the Brighton Open Market community interest company, which has representatives from the market traders, the council, The Ethical Property Company and housing association The Hyde Group.

Brighton and Hove City Council’s economic development committee chairman, councillor Geoffrey Bowden, said: “The market company is striving to make it a unique, thriving place specialising in good-quality, locally-sourced, traceable food and environmentally-friendly goods.

“The market itself will be a place which has regular, loyal customers as well as becoming a magnet for visitors.

“It will be a vital component in seeing a revival in the fortunes of the London Road.

“The city is full of brilliant people with ideas. The market will be a place where these can take root and thrive.”
