Visitors praised the first evening market, held on Friday August 17, for bringing a continental atmosphere to the town centre on a warm summer evening.

The second market will be held between 6pm to 9pm on Friday September 14 to coincide with the three-day Brecks Food and Drink Festival, which is also being held in Swaffham.

Market committee chairman Sheila Lister said a meeting would be held on Wednesday September 5 to iron out traffic problems and improve signage, and she hoped to see 40 stalls at the next event.

She said: “It brought a lot of people into our beautiful market place. We are trying to promote Swaffham as a forward-thinking town and I think we did a really good job.

“What I would really like is local produce. We want to promote what wonderful vegetables we have.”

  • I hope that "iron out traffic problems and improve signage" are separate meeting items. The answer to the traffic problem is simple - don't close the road, put the stalls somewhere that isn't a road, e.g. near the war memorial.
