This year the Love Your Local Market campaign, run by the National Association of British Market Authorities, will be celebrating the important role markets play within local communities.
The decision to extend the market celebration period from Friday, May 13, to Sunday, June 5, to include the Jubilee has been made by East Lindsey District Couyncil (ELDC).
Love Your Local Market is designed to encourage new traders to give the markets a go and local communities to support their local market.
As part of the celebrations, ELDC is offering new traders the opportunity of eight stalls for the price of four on the markets at Spilsby, Horncastle and Louth.
Already six new traders have signed up to take part. Coun Adam Grist, Portfolio Holder for Market Towns and Rural Economy, said: “We are always proud to be part of this campaign and raising awareness around our wonderful markets.
“Markets are a key part of shopping across East Lindsey, and I’d like to thank everyone who stands on our markets across the district for what they do. These markets continue to provide great opportunities to bring communities together and support local economic development.
“I urge anyone interested in trying their hand at running a small business to sign up and give it a go taking full advantage of our great offers.”
