Love Your Local Market

Friday 13th May to Sunday 5th June 2022


The Love Your Local Market fortnight, has now been embraced by over 24 countries worldwide. As you will be aware the NABMA plan was to bring back Love Your Local Market to its traditional dates this year of the last two weeks in May (13 – 27 May).

However, NABMA has decided that it will be sensible to extend the market celebration period for 2022, from Friday 13th May to Sunday 5th June, to link together Love Your Local Market and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This will allow for local events, merchandise and publicity to be merged for greater impact. #LYLM2022

As well as a celebration of markets, one of the key aims of the campaign is to offer opportunities for new businesses to try market trading for free or at a heavily discounted rate.

Over the years, over 11,000 people have taken up the chance to try market trading.

It doesn’t stop there! Markets use the celebration to add exciting events to their calendars, create offers and promotions, create markets for young people and to highlight the important role of markets in our towns and communities.

With comprehensive support from NABMA, including a dedicated social media following of around 30,000 and an intensive period of digital marketing, our aim is to reach more and more people every year.

The most recent campaign saw a social media potential reach of 63 million!
