Councillor Mike Johnson, Leader of Allerdale Borough Council said: “Online events such as this webinar are a fantastic opportunity for those who are looking to become successful market traders.

“Beginning life as a market trader is a low cost, low risk way of launching a brand and gaining a solid reputation within a community. Markets are becoming fashionable places where people not only come to browse local and responsibly sourced products, but also to eat and be entertained.

“Providing this webinar is just part of our overall initiative to support and grow businesses from across Allerdale”.
