In 2017, we have regular markets in Truro from April onwards. 

THE place to be is in the busiest shopping centre in Cornwall. 

We use Aussie Marquees who provide a high-quality, clear-span marquee on Lemon Quay Piazza outside the front doors of Marks & Spencer, Debenham’s and Primark and is always popular with the shopping public. The opening of Primark in Autumn 2016 has significantly increased footfall on Lemon Quay.

For the duration of the event you have, in effect, a shop-front in Truro. Sell your product, raise brand awareness and direct customers to your website without the burden of massive rents, business rates and utility bills associated with shop rental or ownership in this lovely city.


Market Dates 2017


October 27th + 28th + 29th (3 days)

November 24th + 25th + 26th (3 days)


All markets will be held on Lemon Quay Piazza, Truro, TR1 2PU, in front of Marks & Spencer's, Debenhams, and Primark.



In recent years we have noticed the trend of a number of shopkeepers with properties in secondary or tertiary trading positions in the city to take stalls at our events in order to drive increased footfall from our market to their trading premises. These have included Emma’s Home (next to Malletts Hardware) and Mum123 (in Newquay) and Inhabit (Green Street). This seems to be very successful for them and we therefore welcome and encourage shopkeepers in Truro to apply for positions within our events, either on a regular, or ad-hoc, basis.


The cost for each event includes a trading space within the marquee, an on-site manager, overnight professional security (so that your stall can be left in place on Friday night) and free electricity for display purposes. Whichever way you look at it, if you have a good product or service to sell, our events are a very cost-effective means of getting it to market and growing your business. 

Booking Form

The booking form shows what dates we are running markets this year and how much they cost for a pitch. We sell our pitches within the marquee in three sizes; a single, a space and a half or a double. A single space is 6ft frontage by 4ft depth, a space and a half is 9ft frontage by 4ft depth and a double space is 12ft frontage by 4ft depth. Prices for these pitch sizes are shown on the booking form. You only have to pay for your first event in advance. 

Getting started with us is therefore low cost and easy.


New Trader?

Bookings for our events are only accepted from Traders who are on the “Approved Trader” List. 

We are looking for good quality, both in product and presentation. Also, it is important to understand that while you may have a very good quality product it may not necessarily be right for our events.  Traders who wish to be added to the list should email us with a description of their product range and, importantly, include some photographs of product and stall as well links to website and facebook.

Failing the above, you can always bring some samples to us and let our on-site Manager look at your product; we can usually give you an answer straight away.


Public Liability Insurance

All traders at our events must have public liability insurance, see the FAQ page for more details.


Electonic Banking Payments

CCM encourages and welcomes electronic banking payments via the internet (sometimes called “E” or “BACS” payments). This helps keep costs down.

The CCM Sort Code is 089299 and Account No 65755358 Please make sure you use your surname and / or Company name as a reference on the bank transfer.

When you pay by the Internet, please remember to submit your booking form as well (so that we know what the payment is for!) Scanned copies of the booking form i.e. attached to an email, are fine. Most exhibitors also email us when they make an electronic payment. These types of payments are cheaper to issue and to process and are our preferred method of payment.


Cheque Payments

Sorry we no longer are able to accept cheques.


Cornwall Council Trading Licence

Cornwall Council trading licences are no longer required for these events.


Cash Payments

Cash payments are acceptable in person but please do not send cash via the postal service .
