After the phenomenal success of last summer’s Teenage Markets, the FSB, along with the Councils of Doncaster and Rotherham and the Flemingate Centre, will be starting this season’s series of markets in May, offering a great opportunity for young people to experience the excitement of selling to the shoppers of South Yorkshire or performing in front of a live audience.

Doncaster is excited to be holding its first Teenage Market in the Market Place in the Heart of Doncaster Town Centre on Saturday 13 May, and Rotherham will be following with a Teenage Market in Effingham Street on Saturday 27 May. Beverley will be staging its second Teenage Market at the Flemingate Centre on Sunday 4 June. All three events will run from 10am-4pm and will welcome young people aged 13-29 to get involved and showcase their talents and entrepreneurial spirit.

We are delighted to invite all young entrepreneurs and performers to help create three great events for our local town centres. The vibrancy and excitement that young people generate will bring a festival atmosphere to their host town centres. They are completely FREE to take part in and we hope that traders will take away large amounts of cash. Participants don’t have to be established traders or performers either.

We hope that through these important events, a whole new generation of entrepreneurs is discovered. The Teenage Markets offer a vital opportunity for young traders to experience face-to-face selling for the first time. Having the ability and confidence to make a sales pitch is an invaluable attribute for any teenager who fancies a career in business. Here’s a chance for them to hone their pitch and perfect their selling skills.

We’re also looking for young performers to entertain the crowds. Who knows – we may discover the next ‘X Factor’ winner even before Simon Cowell gets a look-in!

It’s really easy to get involved – traders and performers simply need to visit  to register and create themselves a profile about who they are and what they do. Once they have created their profile, they can then apply to take part in the Beverley, Doncaster or Rotherham Teenage Markets by clicking on the events page of the website and applying to be a trader or performer. Individuals and groups will all be welcome.
