Vote for your favourite market trader for a chance to win £50

Offering great shopping, fantastic food and a warm and friendly welcome, Islington’s street markets have been part of our daily lives for more than 100 years.

From Archway Market to Whitecross Street Market, traders are gearing up for the busiest time of year – which is why it’s the perfect time to recognise the important part they play in our local communities.

Annual national campaign Love Your Local Market, which this year takes place 16–30 November, encourages people to celebrate street markets – their importance to the local economy and the great opportunities they offer for people looking to start small businesses.

As part of the celebrations, Islington Council’s Market Trader of the Year awards are returning to crown new champions for 2021. Voting for the borough’s best traders and favourite street food stalls is now open until 7 November 2021.

Winning traders will get £200 off their stall rent, as well as the honour of being this year’s champions. But you can be a winner too! Those who nominated each of the winning traders will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a £50 voucher for their chosen stall.

Visit the Market Trader of the Year website for more information and to vote online – or better still, visit your local market, pick up a voting card and choose your Market Trader of the Year 2021.
