Over the past few months, we have worked with local artists, Jean Mcewan and Chemaine Cooke from Wur Bradford on various projects that aim to create a sense of ambience and atmosphere in the markets.
Traders and staff at Keighley Market brought the spirit of Christmas to the centre of Keighley by raising £2170.00 for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.
Generous shoppers bought raffle tickets for the chance to win a six-in-one games table, with table football, push hockey, skittles, pool, draughts and table tennis.
Love your Local Market is a celebration of our market culture, happening over a fortnight in May each year. More than 1,000 markets took part in 2016 celebrating over 7,000 events and market days. The event has gone viral on social media and digital platforms.
Love your Local Market is also about entrepreneurship with the markets industry providing in excess of 10,000 pitches to new traders over the last 4 years. We are proud to announce that Gala Tent are the main sponsors of Love Your Local Market in 2017.
