Apply for a Stall

Please consider the following guidelines before you apply for a stall.

Applications

All traders attending the event are expected to complete an application form. Application forms are distributed before the event. You will not be considered for a pitch unless you have completed this.  You must only sell goods that are specified on your application. Use the contact form below to be added to the mailing list.

Venues

As the Feast is a pop up event, the venue changes. The event has taken place in car parks and a park. No electricity or other market facilities are provided which means that traders should be fully equipped for mobile trading. Locations of stalls may change depending on the site being used, for example, if unexpected cars have been left in a car park venue.

Trading 

Trading takes place between 11.00-4.00pm on a Feast day. You are responsible for the security of your stall, stock and vehicles. The Feast organiser cannot accept responsibility for the level of trading during the event. Everybody participating is asked to help publicise the event as much as possible, but trading is often weather dependent.

Fees

There is a fee to trade at a Mill Road Feast. The event does not make profit for Cambridge City Council – all income generated from this event is used to pay for publicity costs and hire costs for the event itself. Any leftover income is used for community projects on Mill Road. For example, in 2014, the Mill Road Feast generated £600 that was put towards the cost of Festive Lights in the area.

1x2m pitch = £40

3x3m pitch = £60

3x4m pitch = £80

3x5m pitch = £100

Cancellation

If the Feast is cancelled due to adverse weather, all traders will be refunded.

If a food trader needs to cancel a pitch they have booked, a minimum of 14 days notice is required. Cancellations made within 14 days of the event will not be refunded.

Health and Safety 

All food stalls must comply with the requirements of the Food Safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations, Food Safety (Temperature Control) Regulations and The Food Safety Act. You will be expected to comply with all Health and Safety legislation relevant to market trading and event catering.

You will be expected to have public liability insurance, have conducted a risk assessment before attending and have appropriate safety practices in place.

Waste

You are asked to manage your own waste and take it away with you after attending the event.

All traders are expected to use biodegradable packaging.
