THE Blackburn teenage market is set to return to the town for the second year running.

Organised by the Blackburn Business Improvement District (BID), the event will give young traders the chance to showcase their products for free.

Co-creator of the teenage market, Joe Barratt, said “The teenage market really is the key to identifying a new generation of market traders by making young people an active part of our town centres.

“We are delighted that Blackburn BID is giving young people a free platform to get their businesses off the ground and showcase their creative talents.”

The markets will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 12 and 13.

Harriet Roberts, manager of the Blackburn BID, said: “Visitors will be able to discover the stalls and performers in Ainsworth Street during the weekend.”
