Street trading

You need a street trading licence before you can trade in a market, outside a shop or any other designated street trading site in Hackney.

We offer both permanent and temporary licences, depending on the market location or designated street trading site. 

We’re are always looking for new traders for our markets where we have capacity, and also for other smaller designated street trading sites within Hackney.
