There are two types of stall at Portobello Market. The majority of stalls are run by the council, however some Portobello Market stall pitches are run privately owned.
The council stalls are very hard to get and there is a very long waiting list (up to 4 years). Even then, you are not guaranteed to be allocated one.
Therefore, if you want a stall at Portobello Market in the near future, then your only option is to get a privately owned market stall.
Private owners of pitches at Portobello Market are not allowed to rent out their stalls anymore. Therefore it is now very hard to rent a pitch for any length of time.
Private pitches at Portobello Market do occasionally come up for sale.
If you buy a private pitch, it will come with a licence to trade and is permanent: i.e. it will remain yours until you sell it on, in the future. Make sure to check what the licence allows you to sell.
