Spilsby Market will be participating in the Love Your Local Market campaign in May.
Taking place from 17 May – 31 May, the Love Your Local Market campaign is all about celebrating what is great about markets and encouraging residents to visit and shop at their local market.
Throughout the fortnight, stalls at East Lindsey District Council’s markets in Spilsby, Louth and Horncastle will be decorated with Love Your Local Market branded materials and traders will be giving away shopping bags and shopping pads.
To kick off Love Your Local Market, the Lincoln Teenage Market will be heading on tour to Louth. The event, organised in partnership with Bishop Grosseteste University, will take place on Saturday 18 May, where young traders will be given the opportunity to trade their products alongside the regular Saturday market; a variety of performers will also be attending.
In addition to that, East Lindsey District Council wants to hear from people who are keen to run their own market stall and have an idea of what they’d like to sell. Up to four budding entrepreneurs will be given the chance to trade on the markets at Spilsby, Horncastle and Louth, with free Public Liability Insurance for eight market days and eight market days rent for the price of four to help them get started (£7.50 per stall instead of £15). To apply for one of the four positions, visit https://www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/marketdays and download and return the application form by May 13, 2019.
