Love Your Local Market 2013

Now in it’s second year, we’re predicting that LYLM is going to be even bigger and better in 2013.

Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government announced in the House of Commons in November that LYLM 2013, will run from 15th May to 29th May. He welcomed the support of the markets industry, which has set a target of 500 markets getting involved in this year’s events, in addition to 3,000 new traders. 

The campaign headed up by NABMA is co-ordinated by the Markets Alliance which comprises:- Association of Town Centre Management,  Association of London Markets,  Country Markets,  National Association of British Markets Authorities, National Farmers' Retail & Markets Association and supported by:- Department for Communities and Local Government,  Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs,  National Market Traders Federation,  Local Government Association and the National Association of Local Councils.  

This year there will be no National Market Day and the whole campaign will focus on Love Your Local Market. The fortnight of the campaign from the 15th to the 29th of May will provide an opportunity to provide a national spotlight on markets but I hope that markets will do things throughout the year to promote the theme of Love Your Local Market.

Last years campaign contained many success stories of new traders and examples of how markets around the country celebrated Love Your Local Market can be found on the Love Your Local Market Website.

Roadshows play an important part in spreading the word about LYLM  so please get the date in your diary now for one of our listed Roadshows coming near to you.

We will again be seeking to attract new market traders and research has reported that LYLM introduced almost 2000 people to market trading in 2012n with 200 still trading.

Lets see if we can do better with LYLM 2013. NMTF have generously agreed to help with insurance cover again , should you wish to take advantage of this to run your own event please get in touch with the NABMA office.

Social Media will also be an important part of our campaign so please interact with the tools that are made available in these invites.

LYLM 2013 will be bigger and better if we all get behind the campaign.

Make sure you are involved!
