The Love Your Local Market campaign is coordinated by The National Association of British Market Authorities, the voice of markets in the UK for 100 years.

From the initial Mary Portas idea to hold a National Markets Day, there was only one organisation who could coordinate Love Your Local Market, owing to their unique position within the UK markets industry.

Representing market operators for nearly 100 years the organisation embraces local authorities as well as private operators, community groups and social enterprise.  Representing the market industry at a national level NABMA provides a wide portfolio of services to it’s members.

Gala Tent are the headline sponsors for Love Your Local Market and provide the merchandising for events in your area, get in touch with them today to make #LYLM2017 go with a bang.

So much more than a fortnight in May


With an average 5,000 events and special market days being held each May to celebrate our nation’s high street’s you may think the team concentrate solely on that, when in fact we are here to support markets throughout the year.


From our #LYLMXmas campaign to supporting British Food Fortnight in September and Small Business Saturday on the busiest shopping day of the year, we ensure markets are represented and the stories of traders heard.  Our work with operators will see young people from across the country being put forward for the National Youth Market in September and our ambassadors help spread the word further.
