What one piece of advice would you give to a new stallholder?
Do your research, make a business plan and follow your heart, there’s plenty of room for everyone in this business, so treat your customers, market stall organisers and fellow stall holders with respect. And if you don’t have a passion or love what you sell – don’t do it!
