Young traders celebrated at Trinity Market this weekend

Hull’s Young Traders Market returns this Saturday, 17 July, at Trinity Market in Hull.

The Young Traders Market programme aims to encourage young entrepreneurs, aged 16-30, to use markets as a platform to start or grow their business.

The programme, now in its ninth year, starts with local Young Trader Markets across the UK and then regional finals, before a national final where one trader is awarded the title of National Young Trader of the Year.

This year’s event in Hull will be judged by BBC Radio Humberside presenter James Hoggarth and the Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull and Admiral of the Humber, Councillor Lynn Petrini.

Trinity Market hosts regular popular events.
