The Markets supermarket chain received an excellence in advertising award from the National Grocers Association in the Best Advertising Campaign category.
The award, one of ten similar awards given out by the grocer association, saluted The Markets’ “Really Local” ad campaign, introduced in the chain’s recently renovated Market at Lakeway.
This is the 15th year in a row the Bellingham supermarket company has received an award for its advertising. The “Really Local” campaign was also named as one of four finalists in the NGA’s best of show category, according to a March 8 press release.
The “Really Local” theme proclaims local foods as ones grown or produced within a 35-mile radius of Bellingaham. The Market at Lakeway works with local farmers and suppliers to bring in-season items and unique products to its customers.
