Privately operated markets

There are many great privately operated markets in Hackney. If you’re interested in trading in Hackney as a private operator and obtaining a licence to do so please contact us for help.

Private operator licence

If you’d like to operate a market with 5 or more pitches, either on public or private land, you must apply for an operator licence.

If you wish to sell alcohol at your market, you’re required to apply for a temporary event notice (TEN).

If you intend to sell food at your market, as the operator you’re responsible for ensuring all traders selling food are registered and you have the appropriate food and hygiene certificates.
