A heritage community market is celebrating its second birthday of trading in Littleport.
The community market has successfully traded on the first Saturday morning of every month with a host of local produce in the Adams Heritage Centre in Littleport’s Main Street.
Trade was particularly brisk for the much publicised birthday celebration.
Tracey Harding, town centres manager for East Cambridgeshire District Council, also attended and helped staff a stall or two and sold raffle tickets for the birthday hamper.
She said, “This market was part of the Littleport Town Team’s action plan. This monthly event has done much to revitalise the centre of Littleport, not just on the one day, but every shopping day!”
