Would you like to be a West Linton Market Vendor?
West Linton Market is run by a small group of volunteers, trying to maintain a traditional village market that promotes locally made or grown products, produce and services while advocating for Keep Scotland The Brand. West Linton is a semi-rural community with only a handful of shops - providing a perfect opportunity to sell your wares and/or gain exposure.
We are always on the lookout for new stalls that fit this criteria.
We do have some requirements:
Your primary product should be locally produced (i.e. Scottish & preferably travelled less than 100 miles to get to West Linton), or a service/charity targeting the local community.
We will not cater to stalls reselling a nationally distributed product (e.g. Avon).
Exceptions to this rule will only be made for our Christmas Market held in late November.
You must provide proof of carrying Public/Product Liability Insurance *
If you will be selling food, you must have a Food Hygiene Certificate * and a Council Food Registration Certificate *
Using portable gas? You must produce a Gas Safety Certificate *
Need electricity? We recommend you bring your own extension cables (and possibly a generator), capable of handling your equipment's power requirements. Note: we have one generator, which can feed up to two stalls - with a combined load of 13amp / 2800watt max. Commercial equipment over 2800watts/13A will not be connected.
* required for compliance with Scottish Border Council regulations and our insurance policy.
Please remember that we are community volunteers trying to do what we can, working within our means. We might need to ask you to re-arrange during setup - please don't take this personally - we have no choice but to take into account our health & safety obligations. We will offer help with your setup and teardown where required/requested.
We will provide a table and try to offer cover (unless you prefer your own) and try to work with you towards meeting your needs. We recommend you bring a tablecloth. If you are selling delicate or heavy products, you might want to bring your own sturdier 6ft table (we use standard folding plastic tables), such as Lifetime folding tables from Costco.
Please pay attention to the time you are expected to be at the market. If you are too early, you will have to wait until we have setup the environment with the volunteer help we have available. If you arrive too late and expect to have a specific table location, it is possible that it may have been re-assigned. We'll always do what we can for you, but please work with us.
You should be assigned a table number by email/text before your arrival. Table numbers are a new idea for us - to try to streamline your setup and our pre-planning. You no longer have to worry about 'who to ask' about 'where you are'. You can setup your table as soon as you can find your number! These numbers are posted on the walls of our gazebos or on the table. You can simply put the number aside (for us to collect later) or return it to Sarah or Dean during/after your setup.
During the week before the market, we will publicise the market using our monthly posters (which are scattered throughout West Linton, nearby communities and towns), our three large vinyl banners and via this website, Facebook plus Twitter. Arrows are posted on nearby roads to help passing visitors find the market. This event is also published by Visit Scotland and listed on Google Maps. We rely on your timely correspondence in order to get this information published in good time (some places have limits on how late we can publish details about the market).
Whilst under Covid-19 restrictions, all stalls are required to be outdoors. We have no toilet facilities on site. When this restriction is lifted, we will provide basic refreshments.

We will respond to your message as soon as we are able (usually within 24 hours).
