Ramsgate Market

Thanet District Council seeks an operator, to create a thriving, weekly market in Ramsgate. The new market will be at the centre of Ramsgate’s vibrant community of traders, artisans and entrepreneurs.

Following the introduction of national lockdown restrictions, the market was unable to continue for safety reasons and the previous operator subsequently withdrew. It was closed in October 2020.

In June 2022, Cabinet approved proposals to secure a new operator for the market. It also agreed to remove existing street trading and hawking restrictions on the High Street, King Street and Queen Street.

The proposal is that the new market will run every Friday. It will be in the centre of Ramsgate, taking in the High Street and Queen Street.

Thanet District Council will be responsible for the promotion of the market. The new operator will be offered a two year licence. They will have the freedom to choose the traders, fees and market stalls. There will be an option to renew at the end of two years if a sustainable market has been established.

You can learn more or request an application pack by emailing: propertyandassetmanagement@thanet.gov.uk

The deadline for licence applications is Thursday, 14 September 2023.
