Who can use StreetDots?
From a juice trike to an airstream and everything in between, we have dots for all shapes and sizes. Our dots have hosted bikes, stalls, gazebos, tuk tuks, vintage vans and even a converted London taxi. Enter the details of your set up when you sign up and our smart matching system will make sure you fit!
From street food to flowers to fashion
StreetDots started with street food, but our vision has always been bigger – to revolutionise pitch booking for all street vendors no matter what they sell. In 2018 we launched our first retail dots to help mobile businesses such as flower stalls, fashion accessories and food gifting. Different things sell at different times, so many of our dots can be booked for a particular day part, for example a lunchtime or evening.
Smart matching to help you succeed
StreetDots was created to democratise the process of street vending. Our aim is to give first time vendors the same opportunities as established traders – there is a dot for everyone!
StreetDots will only match you with locations where you have potential to perform. For example, we would never put you next to another vendor or shop selling the same thing. Some of our sites also might not be available to you for practical reasons, such as the size and height of your set up. Don’t worry, if you cannot book a particular dot, we will always let you know why.
Not only does StreetDots want your business to do well, we want to help you fly. Could a scruffy sign or ripped gazebo be holding you back? Ever wondered why you have been turned down by a particular market or festival? Our highly experienced street ambassadors will work with you to elevate your business and take your turnover to the next level.
We welcome all types of street vendors onto our network of pitches. The TradeSmart app will find a space to suit you, whether you run a stall, gazebo, trike, truck, or converted ambulance! We pride ourselves on the variety of different products that are sold by our traders. Here are a few examples, to give you the picture. Can’t see your product?

Snap your pitch up
StreetDots knows how hard it is to find a good pitch. That is why we created technology to help you trade when and where you want. Upload your documents once on our web portal, then book a pitch in a couple of clicks using the TradeSmart app. StreetDots’ UK wide network of pitches or ‘dots’ includes city office complexes, public squares, shopping streets and retail parks. They are available to book a day at a time, or even for a part day, like breakfast or lunch. We use trading data to price each pitch individually to make it work for your business.
The benefits of StreetDots do not stop with hassle free bookings. We promote your business through our digital marketing channels and customer app. We have also added tools, like digital invoicing and sales data tracking, to make managing your business that little bit easier.
