LYLM2015 Valentines Comp

In the run-up to this years Love Your Local Market celebrations in May, we are wanting you to think seriously about shopping locally down at your market.  The news is all talk about the closure of supermarkets across the country, and the reduction in produce lines that they are cutting by up to 30%.  Borough Market is a flagship British example of wonderful food but across the country you can find amazing, innovative food and crafts made by local people with passion and love.  Lets start thinking of our local markets as true alternatives to the soulless Big Box giants.

With Valentines Day falling on a Saturday this year and with so many markets on that day, why not pop down to your local market.  Meet a stallholder – hear all about their stories and what makes them tick.  You can fill your shopping baskets with the essentials and may find some wonderful surprises too.

For a chance to win the Borough Market Winter Hamper, simply click on the link below and answer two questions….why do you love your local market and what is the name of your local market?  That’s it.  The best answers will will go into a prize draw that will be announced on Twitter, with an email going to the winner at 5 o’clock on Valentines Day.

Or you can tweet us….follow @loveurlocalmkt  & say “I love my local market @{NAME OF YOUR MARKET} because {YOUR REASON} #LYLM2015.

Good luck!
