Millennials are being encouraged to set up stall at the world famous Portobello Market in an effort to encourage future generations to become street traders.
Young people can get a cut-price licence, stall and pitch at Portobello and Golborne Road Markets for one weekend during the Christmas shopping period.
They will have the chance to set up for just £10 over two days to sell their wares amid Notting Hill’s busy stalls, as part of the Portobello Markets’ drive to encourage a new generation of traders.
The youth market opportunity is part of the New Youthquake project set up last May amid the Love Your Local Markets campaign.
Meesha Lewis, from Tavistock Road, planned to take up the opportunity to sell her own fashion designs.
“I liked that my community has the opportunity to see my work. It is great to be part of Portobello’s history” she said.
“My grandmother and mother both shop for their friends in the market. As the new generation, it is great to be part of that legacy.”
The pitches normally cost £47 a day before the costs of a trading licence and stall.
However the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council is urging young people to apply for the discount to trade during two days on the weekend of December 1-2.
