The Manchester Youth Market is a monthly market for 16-21 year old stallholders. Fashion, food, music – you name it, you can sell it. Offering a way onto the business ladder for youth in the city without the usual overheads of market trading (stallholders are exempt from the usual £104 fee you have to pay), the Youth Market is a great space that gives young creatives the city centre exposure and opportunity for self-employment they really need.
So: WHY HAVE THEY DECIDED TO CUT IT?
Holly Marie Saunders has set up a petition to protest the council’s decision to axe the youth market in spite of it’s popularity and the obvious benefits.
