Some background from Brixton Business Improvement District:

Brixton Markets are vital to our town centre and high street trading, offering much more than just a shopping experience.

Our 2017 Love Your Local Market campaign in Brixton will, for the first time, celebrate the unique combined offers of our indoor and outdoor markets. Brixton has a rich history of markets and market trading not seen elsewhere in London. Often described as the heart and soul of Brixton’s retail offer, our markets; Brixton Village and Market Row, Electric Avenue, Popes Road, Brixton Station Road, Tunstall Road, and Reliance Arcade are normally a gauge of the vibrancy of our local retail offering.

With the recent refurbishment of the Electric Avenue market, Love Your Local Market 2017 becomes the first opportunity to exhibit to the public Electric Avenue in all its new glory. Brixton Village and Market Row will entice the public with its unusual shopping experiences and options.

Brixton BID will this year join local key stakeholders and partners in celebrating European Launch of Love Your Local Market 2017:

Lambeth Council
Groupe Geraud / Brixton Village and Market Row
Brixton Pound
Brixton Market Traders Federation CIC
Brixton Society
Lambeth Forest Network / Tree Shepherd

Markets are not just in May but all-year-round. Local shoppers are becoming wary of long supply chains and are once again turning to local butchers, bakers, and traders and other traditional outlets. Markets still hold a special place in the hearts of local people, offering a friendly place to shop and socialise.

Last year’s Love Your Local Market activities included ‘our celebrity breakfast’ and high-quality entertainment throughout the week-long celebrations. This brought an increase in footfall to our market areas. This year, the focus is on delivering a week of events, attractions, and entertainment with a greater focus on fun, increased trade, and increased footfall.

Our festival is again scheduled to take advantage of this year’s school half-term in May, thereby encouraging children and families to visit and participate in our fun and festivities.

We are encouraging market operators, traders and members of the public to join us for a week of activities!
