For Love Your Local Market fortnight, we headed off to the Portobello Road who are celebrating the 150th year of the markets of Portobello and Golborne being trading places for West London.  We hope that you enjoy this sweet video that highlights the fantastic launch event that the we were privileged to attend earlier in the year.

Joining us for our Love Your Local Market event, where the team from Small Business Saturday who worked alongside us to deliver an ‘Inspire Series’  in Tavistock Square.  Look out for some content coming up on our Youtube Channel to hear from the panel of business experts and traders who turned up on the day.

One of the key messages of the day however was to encourage market traders to apply to be one of the Small Biz 100.  For the last two years, the 100 have not only received exposure on the Small Business Saturday social media channels and in the local press, but also joined the team in London at a reception in Downing Street and a special Christmas Market held outside the Prime Ministers door too.  

We would strongly urge the great businesses that we have trading on the nations markets to apply for this level of exposure.  Applications for 2015 will open on June 1st, 2015 and you can find out more on the SBSUK website:
