To trade in a market in Westminster you will need a suitable licence that relates to the type of trading you will be doing.
Street trading licences allow you to trade from a designated area - either an isolated site or a pitch in one of our markets. Street trading licences are permanent in duration.
Temporary licences are the most commonly issued licences in Westminster because many markets are being improved and developed in the future, potentially affecting the availability of pitches. Temporary licences are issued for a maximum of 6 months, renewed after this in line with licence conditions.
Registered casual traders can work in any of the Westminster markets where a pitch available. You can do this by swapping vouchers bought from the Post Office for a temporary licence.
This is suitable for traders wanting to try out a market before committing to a regular licence or who wish to trade at more than one market in Westminster.
Traders will have to pay an application fee as well as a regular pitch fee. View fees list
If you no longer require your licence, you will need to surrender it to the licensing service.
