Cancelled* Market Trader Day

Cancelled* Market Trader Day

Food, drink, gifts, clothing, and more - with love from your Union!

Tue 05 May 2020 09:00-17:00, The Atrium, Kedleston Road

All Union organised events have been cancelled or postponed from today. Given the current situation, we feel bringing large groups of people together is not appropriate and instead we will continue to be available online to connect with you and help to connect our student community. Any tickets purcashed for any Union event are in the process of being refunded.

All Union advice appointments will now be carried out via phone or Skype. This is in the interest of protecting the wellbeing of our staff advisors and the students visiting for appointments.

Appointments are still available to book online


Here at the Union of Students we love to support local businesses, especially ones that bring great products or services to our students. We showcase them in our Atrium via our market trader stalls and love the vibrant atmosphere they create. Whether you want some delicious Asian cuisine, discounted products from some well-known brands or scrummy baked goods, our market traders have it all. From driving lessons to vintage clothing, from stunning posters to meditation apps – they promise you varied and exciting products each month.

We specifically choose businesses that have something to offer our students and who enjoy engaging with them face-to-face. Creating a sense of community is key to our culture here at Derby, and highlighting the importance of supporting local businesses is a big message we want to send to all. We have regular stalls who have built great rapport and we also welcome new traders that want offer something different. Whether it’s a pick-me-up or a much needed distraction from studies, our students continue to support and enjoy our market traders.
