Love Your Local Market family fun-day
A special market bringing fun for all the family returned to Stockton High Street on Saturday 25 May.
The free Love Your Local Market Family Fun Day marked the eighth national Love Your Local Market fortnight campaign that celebrates all that is great about our beloved markets.
And visitors enjoyed free face painting and a fantastic market trail to win vouchers to spend on the wide range of stalls at Stockton’s traditional market. Costumed characters, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse and LOL Surprise were also on hand to entertain shoppers along with some live music from local band The Kets.
Love Your Local Market fortnight takes place between 17 May and 31 May and is a celebration of UK markets and we are encouraging everyone to join us for a brilliant day of fun for all family and a chance to grab some bargains from our weekly market.
The Borough’s traditional markets have been bringing visitors into town centres for over 700 years and they’re located in Billingham, Stockton and Thornaby.
