Love Your Local Market in Kirklees
We’re joining 1,100 markets across the country to raise awareness of market trading and market shopping through the’Love Your Local Market’ campaign.
The campaign aims to attract new market traders, and highlight the importance that markets play in the local community. They not only provide a place to shop but also a focal point for many of our town centres.
To support the national campaign, we’ve offered free stalls to young entrepreneurs aged from 13 to 29 years old.
Over 40 young entrepreneurs have already taken on one of these free stalls and booked their place on one of the Love your Local Market events.
Love your Local Market events
The first event takes place on Sunday 17 May at Holmfirth Sunday Market. There will be 16 young stallholders joining the regular farmers market. The market is open from 9am-2pm.
The next event takes place at Queensgate Market on Saturday 23 May. A further 8 stallholders will ‘pop-up’ inside the market.
Finally, 20 young stallholders will be at Dewsbury Market on Wednesday 27 May and on Saturday 30 May.
The young stallholders sell a wide range of products including handmade jewellery, handmade soaps, photography, cakes, vintage clothing, homewares and fashion.
