Thursday 04th August 2016
Train company TransPennine Express (TPE) is offering local retailers, small businesses and independent traders the chance to sell local produce to customers at Hull and Middlesbrough railway stations.

Is everyone talking about your scrumptious cupcakes, homemade crafts or unique paintings? Then why not take the opportunity to trade to commuters, visitors and locals alike.

Hull and Middlesbrough stations are the gateways to their communities, and TPE is offering weekly market stall spaces on the main concourses for community traders.

The stations are visited by millions of people every year, and passenger numbers are only expected to grow with rail travel being more popular than ever before.

TPE has a vision to Take the North Further and is committed to delivering an improved experience for customers by working with local businesses.

Hull Station Manager, David Hatfield, and Middlesbrough Station Manager, Mike Drewery, commented:

“This is a brilliant opportunity for local retailers, small businesses and independent traders to sell their goods to customers at a busy working station.

“Whether you’re a green grocer, baker or expert cake maker, we want the pop up stalls to showcase the excellent quality products and goods that Hull and Middlesbrough have to offer.

“We would encourage any interested parties to get in touch or pop into either station for a chat.”
