Sandwell market bosses are seeking young people who may be interested in setting up market stalls.
The stalls would be judged as part of a nationwide competition, and the winners would then be sent forward into a regional and national final in Stratford upon Avon later in the year.
Councillor David Hosell, cabinet member for highways and environment, said: “We would love to get a wide range of young business people who want to sell either goods they source or make, and also those who want to use the opportunity as a pilot to test their business ideas.
“We would also welcome anyone wishing to use the markets to promote a service business rather than simply selling goods. Many a successful company has been started on a market stall.
“So individuals who wished to promote a fledgling wedding photography business would be just as welcome to have a stall as someone opening a cake decorating business,” he added.
