LYLM Market in Germany


Europe celebrates its markets
15 to 31 May 2015; 2 weeks of festivities at 2,000 street markets, market halls
and wholesale markets in 16 countries
For the first time, 60 street markets and market halls in 12 regions of Germany will
be joining the European “Love your local market” campaign which runs from 15 to
31 May. From mid-May to the end of the month these markets will be staging
many colourful, informative events and special campaigns, using the German
slogan “Erlebe Deinen Markt” (experience your market) to highlight the vital role
they play in supplying local consumers.
Andreas Foidl, GFI managing director at Berlin Wholesale Market says, “We are
very proud to be joining the ‘Love your local market’ movement. The initiative
gives support to the many dedicated market operators who work to enhance
public awareness of street markets, specialist markets and market halls.”
Markets are social meeting points and communication platforms. By shopping
here, people boost regional economies and their many small enterprises. Markets
combine tradition with modernity. Authentic traders give a personal guarantee for
their goods. They are the experts, offering a wide variety of fresh, regional produce
in good quality. “Joint events in the context of the ‘Love your local market’
campaign will focus the spotlight on specific regions and enhance consumers’
awareness of the social, cultural and economic role markets play,” says Andreas
