People are showing their love for markets in record numbers during this year’s Love Your Local Market Campaign.
The event which continues until 30th October, has already seen over 12,000 interactions from markets, traders and the public, beating the overall total in 2019 – the last time the Love Your Local Market Campaign ran.
Consumers, markets & stall-holders are joining in the campaign using the hashtag #LYLM2021 and sharing news of their events, incentives for new traders and proving again that “Markets are at the Heart of our Communities”.
David Preston, Chief Executive of NABMA (which organises the campaign), said:
After such a difficult 18 months for markets across the UK, it is heartening to see people getting behind their markets and supporting the Love Your Local Market campaign.
It really does show that markets are key to the rejuvenation of our high streets and are vital assets for their local communities.
There is still time to get involved, so I would urge everyone to take some time to visit their local market and show some love online too.
