The first 26 children to apply were given a free stall for the day and encouraged to sell their goods alongside market traders of some years experience.

Toby said “this is an excellent initiative giving children the chance to experience the world of commerce, while enjoying being part of Chesterfield’s iconic market tradition. All the children I spoke to were thoroughly enjoying the experience and I hope the concept goes from strength to strength.”

Mr Perkins added: “My daughter also greatly appreciated this Justin Bieber CD, a bargain at 80p!”
