Entrepreneurs and small business start-ups are being offered free stalls on Bromley's historic Charter Market for up to five days.
Market bosses have teamed up with The National Market Traders Federation to encourage new businesses, who have the opportunity to continue to trade for up to 12 months for discounted rent.
Cllr Peter Morgan, executive for renewal and recreation, said: “Getting started in business is not easy, particularly in the current economic climate but markets are a great way to launch businesses and products with minimal risk.
“Our historic Charter Market, at the heart of the community for over 800 years, brings its own unique and vibrant atmosphere to Bromley’s town centre.”
The First Pitch scheme is open to people over 16 with less than six months experience of market trading. Successful applicants will be assigned a mentor and receive a free market trader guide.
