Have you ever had an idea for a new business you were certain could be a success if only you knew how to turn it from a dream into a reality? Have you put that dream aside because you don’t have the money to develop it or the know-how to make it happen?
Well if you have, you’re not alone. Although as we continue experience job insecurity in a poor economic climate, is the thought of going out on our own becoming something we are seriously considering?
Perhaps it is, but there are too many hurdles that put you off? But what if you could start a business without needing a huge amount of cash or overheads to get up and running?
If that sounds appealing then you might want to consider joining the thousands of people around the UK who are kick starting their business careers by trading at the hundreds of market’s around the nation.

But it’s not as easy as just turning up to market with some homemade jam. So to help Britain’s budding entrepreneurs break onto the market scene The National Market Traders Federation have produced the definitive guide to market stall success.
