Trading with The Spread

As part of our commitment to empowering others through food,   
our dedication to supporting independent food and drink businesses
and in recognition of the impact of Covid-19, we are offering the ability to trade for free until the end of February 2022. 

Ordinarily, we charge Trade Partners a fee which is a percentage of the gross sales revenue that they generate at our markets. This fee is typically 14% to 18% which contributes to covering our overheads such as salaries, marketing and license fees payable to our landowner partners.  

However, we appreciate that there is a need to build up regular custom before your business can become profitable at our markets. We recognise and there are many costs such as staffing, production and logistics  to take into account. We want to ensure that we can provide a genuine platform for growth and hope that by offering the ability to trade for up to three months  with no fee payable to The Spread, you will be able to continue trading with us beyond your initial trading period.

We also ask that you honour any 10% discount promo codes that we might have running, which are distributed in and around the areas in which we operate to attract new custom.

All of our markets are card only and we provide you with a card reader before you commence trading. There is  a card processing fee of 1.06% payable on your gross sales revenue generated each week which is retained by our payment partner.
