The Council licences individual parts of the highway, usually referred to as 'designated sites'. These are either singular stalls or small clusters of stalls outside of market areas.

We have sites in Lower Morden/Raynes Park, Wimbledon Village and Wimbledon Town Centre.

In Wimbledon we have two main town centre locations, Hartfield Market and St Mark's Place.

Running from Hartfield Road car park to The Broadway, between Robert Dyas and Morrisons, Hartfield Market is one of the newest trading sites in the borough.

St Mark's Place, located between Wimbledon Library and the Alexandra Public House, is one of our oldest trading sites, whose pitch numbers have recently been increased to accommodate more traders.

Designated sites also include catering vehicles, with the majority of these located in industrial areas such as Weir Road, Willow Lane and Lombard Road although there are some in Wimbledon town centre .

To trade from a designated site an annual street trading licence is required. We post details of any available pitches on our vacancies page.

Prospective traders can also apply for a location they find themselves. We ask all traders to approach us directly before submitting an application so some pre-assessment of the site can be undertaken before a full application is submitted.

As with all food businesses in the borough, designated sites must be registered and are subject to periodic inspection by our Environmental Health team. For details see Registration of Food Businesses.
