2017 marked the 6th consecutive year of the Love Your Local Market campaign, which continues to be the biggest celebration of markets that has taken place across the country, and events under the Love Your Local Market brand took place in 17 countries across the globe this May. We had another amazing year with around 1300 places taking part over the fortnight. Thanks must go to our sponsors, Gala Tent.
