All of our markets are different in character and style so it is important to understand the market that you are applying for a licence on.
All vacancies on the markets are advertised on the website, and only applications submitted in line with advertised vacancies will be accepted.
We accept business proposals from potential food and non-food traders who are interested in trading on any vacant market or isolated pitch whilst that vacant pitch is being advertised. These allow us to find out more about the trader and their business.
Please review the current vacant pitches and if there is a vacancy that you are interested in, please submit a business proposal online:
If no vacant pitches are currently being advertised, we are not accepting business proposal at the present time. Please therefore wait until a vacancy is advertised before submitting your business proposals. Any proposal received before a vacancy is advertised will not be considered.
If your business proposal is successful, you will be invited to apply for a licence.
Food and non-food traders must apply for a licence in person at Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QP. Applications must be accompanied by the correct fee.
Please provide the following (include the first 4 in the business proposal to speed up the approval process):

Prior to your licence being granted, an environmental health officer will need to approve your stall set-up, equipment and operation at the market. This site visit is arranged once your formal application has been received.
