27 May LYLM Launch at Portobello
The launch of Love Your Local Market 2013 at London’s Portobello Road Market was a fantastic event starting at the First Floor Restaurant overlooking the world famous market.
Not a traditional market day, the team from Kensington and Chelsea, winners of this years Best Outdoor Market category in the Nabma Market of the Year Awards did us proud with the street lined with new traders, local schools, charities and the most fabulous traditional market barrow parked outside the Electric Cinema. We were joined on the day by Minister for Growth, Mark Prisk and colleague Don Foster MP, who toured the market meeting all of those taking part in the occasion.
We were also joined by new Love Your Local Market friends Start UK who are running a campaign this May based on sustainable living, namely Be The Start…. you want to see in the world. Launch day for LYLM was our Be The Start Day as we see markets as an integral part of sustainable communities in the future.
