Special offer for potential market traders 

If you’re looking to launch a new business idea this year, an offer at Bridgend Market might catch your entrepreneurial eye. 

Potential traders are being offered the chance to set up a stall for the special rate of £27 per day. 

All stalls are available at this discounted rate, regardless of their size, although tenants can only rent the stalls for a block of three consecutive days at a time before they must take a minimum one day break. 

Any budding entrepreneurs will need to have their own public liability insurance, which costs around £50 for a year. 

Councillor Hywel Williams, Bridgend County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to see if their business ideas have the potential to be successful. A fantastic range of products and services are on offer in Bridgend Market, and your business could soon be joining them. This discounted rate will be available until August but may be extended until a later date. 

To find out more about renting a stall at Bridgend Market, call Charlotte Egerton at Bridgend County Borough Council on 01656 642703 or email Charlotte.egerton@bridgend.gov.uk

Brief history of the market

Bridgend Market occupies a prime position within the retail sector of Bridgend, and is situated within the Rhiw Shopping Centre which fronts on to Caroline Street, Nolton Street and Queen Street. The Market is situated on the ground floor, and has access to the basement on the lower ground floor, with vehicular access to Queen Street. Below are some interesting facts in the long history of the Indoor Market Hall dating from its inception in 1837.

1836

The Bridgend Market Act passed to remove position and livestock markets from the streets around the Town Hall.

1837

New Market Hall opened on Lady Day, built by the Earl of Dunraven or his ancestors on the site of the old Tennis Courts, which then became the Tennis Court Hotel in Caroline Street and is now Seconds Ahead.

1906

The Market Hall remained in use until it was replaced by a new, fully covered Market Hall.

1908

A Grand Eisteddfod was held in the Market Hall on Boxing Day.

1955

Bridgend Urban District Council purchased the Market Hall from the Dunraven Estates Ltd.

1972

The Market Hall in Caroline Street closed and the last stallholders left at the end of May 1972. The Hall was demolished in June 1972 after standing since 1906. The new Market opened on Monday 15 May 1972.

1996

On 1 March 1996 the 130 year old Market Bell was re-installed. It was revealed that the bell had been laying idle in a Council depot since the demolition of the old market in 1972.
