Miscellaneous street trading sites
In Hackney, we make a distinction between full markets and street trading (or miscellaneous sites) by the number of traders in a location.
If a site has 5 or more traders, we usually call this a market. Any less and it is considered a miscellaneous site.
If you would like to trade in any of our existing miscellaneous sites or if there is a location that you would like to trade from in Hackney, keep reading.
Like traders in our markets, miscellaneous traders require a street trading licence if they wish to trade in Hackney.
There are a number of traders throughout Hackney trading from miscellaneous sites. Many of these are single traders located outside trains stations or other places around the borough.
We also have a few established miscellaneous sites located in Hoxton Street, Narrow Way, Clifton Street, Leonard Street, and Old Street. View a map of existing trading locations.
If there is a new location in Hackney that you would like to trade from, please contact email@example.com, and we’ll check whether it’s possible for you to trade from this location.
To apply to trade in a miscellaneous site, you’ll need to apply for a market trading licence.
