Printer-friendly versionPDF version

COPELAND council is offering six lucky traders the chance to hire a market stall during the upcoming Taste Cumbria Summer Festival.

The festival is set to take place on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23, 2017, and similar events across the county have featured up to 40,000 visitors and benefited the local economy to the sum of up to £3 million per event. 

Taste Cumbria has around 40 stallholders set to sell their produce so far alongside some of the county’s best known chefs who will be showcasing their skills throughout the weekend. 

Each available stall will cost £18 per day and will be located at the regular twice weekly Whitehaven Market. In addition to the pop-up market stalls there will also be 10 tables available to hire on Sunday, July 23, priced at £10 each.

Mike Starkie, Mayor of Copeland, said: “We’re offering a fantastic opportunity for local traders to hire a stall during the festival.

“There will undoubtedly be a massive footfall of people visiting the town over the weekend and we’d urge those looking to sell their produce to get in touch as soon as possible to guarantee their place.”
