A campaign celebrating Britain's Markets
WHAT IS LYLM
For the low down on the five years of the campaign and why we are so passionate about making markets work for better communities, young people, start ups and small business.
From Press Release templates to the campaigns brand standards, the Media Pack will give you all the tools you need to get your Love Your Local Market event underway.

Markets are a fantastic breeding ground for entrepreneurs. Superdry, Monsoon, Marks and Spencers all started here. Take a look at some of the best traders out there right now.
In 2014 we made a commitment to government to help foster 100 youth markets across the country and from Manchester to Cardiff young people have been u for the challenge.
TAKE THE QUIZ
Are you a market ninja? Has your market been part of LYLM since the beginning? Then test your knowledge and wit by taking our short 5 minute quiz.
Get your market kitted out in style for Love Your Local Market fortnight or all year-round. It can be as simple as badges, balloons and bunting or extend to t-shirts, banners and feather flags.
Our main sponsors Gala Tent are providers of high quality commercial equipment that is reliable, durable and flexible for traders. Find out about them and other organisations that support the campaign.
SET UP A MARKET IN YOUR AREA
In our ‘Toolkit for setting up a local market’ you will find out everything you need to know about setting up a market in your town, village or neighbourhood from negotiation with the council to marketing.
Throughout the year there are loads of things you can do in the run-up to LYLM and on your market to celebrate traders, your local community and regional distinctiveness.
