Published Tuesday, 2nd June 2015

The traders of Melton’s Farmers Market are looking for a new cohesive identity and are calling on the community of Melton to help them by launching a competition to design a new logo.

The market, which is held on Tuesday and Friday’s at the Livestock Market, is a hidden gem of specialist and unique stalls selling local produce and hand crafted gifts. The word needs to be spread about the market’s popularity and the traders have agreed that’s it’s time to get themselves known and have decided to launch a competition for the local community to come up with a design for a new logo which can be used on new signs, leaflets, banners and online promotions.

The competition is open to any resident, of any age, who resides within the Borough of Melton and may be submitted by an individual, a group or by a school. The logo must contain the words ‘Melton Mowbray Farmers Market’.

Entry Forms and full conditions can be obtained from the traders themselves on a Tuesday or Friday, the Livestock Market Office or downloaded from the Melton Borough Council Website. The closing date for entries is 30th June 2015.

The winner will receive a hamper containing produce from the stall holders and will be invited to a Launch Event planned for the Summer.

This initiative is part of wider scheme to build on the success of the Farmer’s Market in Melton Mowbray. The traders are working closely with the Melton Mowbray Market Partners and Melton Borough Council to look at ways the facility to the south of the Livestock Market can be improved to enhance it’s historic rustic charm. Watch this space for new initiatives to follow !!!

Nicole at LovePreserved said ‘We are all proud of our Farmers Market and we work together to bring you the best local produce. Come along and see why our customers love us so much"

Bryan Robinson, of Melton Mowbray Market Partners said “With the redevelopment of the Livestock Market due to start, this is a great opportunity to look at the site to the south and explore possible improvements through engagement with our traders. Following recent meetings with Melton Borough Council and the traders we are already looking at possible internal and external funding to roll out some exciting initiatives to improve the trading environment and promote the markets and events.”

Lisa Brown, Town Centre Manager, said ‘Melton’s Farmers Market is truly an inspirational and unique shopping experience which we need to shout about, not just locally but regionally to. The new logo will allow us to really develop a brand to spread the word and show everyone what an asset to the area we have and help develop the market further.’

Cllr Pam Posnett, Town Centre Champion, said “We want to see our town bustling with people and produce and develop experiences which deliver the Rural Capital of Food brand. Our Farmers Market is an unique attraction which fits the bill and could become a major attraction for visitors as well as serving our local community with quality local produce”
