Hello! So you're interested in trading with us? That's wonderful. With Fairs & Markets that cover Craft & Design, Vintage & Salvage, Food & Drink and Home & Garden we welcome traders of all shapes, but not all sizes. Our focus is on small independent makers, designers, producers and curators. Please have a read of what we look for in our traders and then, if you think we're right for each other, fill out the form below to be notified of event news and application dates.
We offer all of our traders a warm welcome and the chance to be a part of a carefully curated line up. Many of our traders return to our events year after year but we also welcome new traders to each and every event. All of our fairs and markets have an application process as sometimes we have over 5 times the number of applications to trader spaces, this means we can't welcome every trader along. If you are unsuccessful in an application it doesn't mean there is anything wrong with you (or with us), it might just mean we're not right for each other.
Duchy Fairs is all about the value of buying independent so please note that we are only interested in applications from independent traders. You can have a shop space and sell through other retailers but you should not be a multi outlet business (unless you are a UK food & drink producer).
Most of our fairs have a different concept and style. Please take the time to get a sense of what each of the fairs are about to make sure it's the right context for your wonderful wares.
PROFESSIONAL AND WELL PRESENTED
We are looking for traders who present themselves well in terms of product, brand, display and communications (e.g. social channels / website). Competition is fierce and an applicant who makes something similar to you but presents themselves more professionally will be the successful applicant.
QUALITY AND UNIQUE
We look for quality products where real skill is shown in the making or curating of the range. If you trade something that anyone could easily make, curate or trade you are less likely to be a successful applicant, we love the unique!
Where relevant we also prioritise applications from makers-designers-producers who have complete control over their production process rather than buying in pre made elements.
