Love Your Local Market
Love Your Local Market (LYLM) is a festival of markets run by the trade body for market organisers, NABMA. The NMTF supports the campaign and encourages market and street traders, events retailers and mobile caterers to get involved.
The focus of this year’s LYLM was supporting young people. In May, market operators offered free or discounted pitches to young people so they could test the market.
Following this, each market that took part is welcome to send a Market Champion to the National Youth Market.
OK, so LYLM is *officially* over for 2017 – but this doesn’t stop market and street traders, mobile caterers and events retailers from keeping the momentum going for the rest of the year.
Organise a big party, pick up some merch, share your love for your market on social media. It’s like with most things, with LYLM you get out what you put in – so have a chat over a brew and see what you can do!
