Love Your Local Market 2018 is a fortnight long campaign that promotes and showcases the uniqueness that can only be found in our markets.
Markets offer so much more than just a shopping experience, and this campaign is designed to show that, with events, displays and exhibitions taking place throughout the fortnight.
Last year’s event saw a wide range of organisations, clubs, charities, singers and entertainers come into Barrow Market and entertain shoppers over the two week period. It was a great success, stall holders, and customers loved the variety of entertainment and it provided a fantastic platform for their skills and talents.
The theme this year is Markets for Millennials. It’s vital that markets remain relevant for the next generation of traders and consumers in order for them to thrive and survive.
