Love Your Local Market – Week One – Thank You

Love Your Local Market – Week One – Thank You

We have had a stunning first week of #LYLM2023 blessed with good weather and so many excellent events. 

With our #MarketsFirst Campaign now up and running it has been heartening to see the many teenage and young people markets. With our key priority not only to retain traders but to attract new entrants to the industry then these local initiatives are welcomed. It has also been excellent to enjoy local heats of the National Young Trader Campaign scheduled into the two weeks. 

Many markets are also providing induction and welcome to market trading events and we look forward to seeing the outcomes from these projects. 

As we head to week two of #LYLM then we must say a huge thank you to Zapp Outdoor for their return as our generous sponsor of the Campaign. If you need new market infrastructure then please chat with Mark Parry and his team. 

Our thanks also go to our NABMA media team for all the wonderful social media, graphics and stories before and during the campaign. A huge thanks to Ian and Rob at Square Cactus. 

NABMA is looking forward to the second week of this worldwide Campaign. Use the #LYLM2023 hashtag and send us your stories and pictures. Let’s celebrate our local markets and market people and the huge contribution that they together make within local communities.

We welcome news stories, job vacancies and tender opportunities from our members for publication. If your market has some news to share, please email
