The Youth Market has been arranged through Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Business and Enterprise Team.
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing, Councillor Nigel Cooke, said: “Events like the Youth Market help to give young people a taste of what it could be like to run their own business while also developing their skills, confidence, and encouraging enterprise.
“There are a lot of very talented young people growing up in our Borough and we want to support them to develop their skills and knowledge.
“If you’re in Stockton on Saturday why not pop along?”
The Youth Market will run alongside the traditional Saturday Market between 9am and 4pm.
