Vendors sell on agreed pitches in city centres and out of town areas across the North West, Yorkshire and Humber. Big Issue North works with shopkeepers, city centre management teams and local agencies to agree pitch locations. When vendors begin selling the magazine, they must commit to meeting our Vendor Expectations. These set out the times that vendors can sell, as well as their behaviour while on the pitch.
