Voting is now open for people to nominate Leicester’s historic market to become Britain’s favourite market.
More than 100,000 votes were cast in the competition last year, with Ashton-Under-Lyne winning the accolade, which they say led to increased footfall and a great boost to their market.
Leicester City Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby said: “Leicester Market is one of our city’s finest assets and a popular destination for local shoppers.”
“We’re investing in the market because we know how important it is to our local economy. Our iconic new food hall has already been a huge success with both shoppers and traders.”
“Now is our chance to show the rest of the country just how special Leicester Market is by voting for it to become Britain’s favourite.”
Voting is now open for the annual award, and can be done online via the National Association of British Market Authorities. To cast your vote, visit www.nabma.com. Voting closes on New Year’s Eve.
There’s also an option where you can upload a picture of your favourite market and get as many people as possible to ‘like’ your picture.
