A town's market is returning with a whole new look following a major transformation.

The former King's Lynn Farmers' Market has undergone a makeover during a five-month break to become a merchants' market which will host some of Norfolk's best stallholders.

It will return on May 14 with a vast offering including freshly made bread, doughnuts, global cuisines and locally produced beverages and spirits.

The market will take place on the second Saturday of every month.

The updated event will now host craft and gift traders alongside the usual offering to give visitors more choice.

There will also be outdoor seating provided and occasional live music too.

Vicky Etheridge, King's Lynn BID manager, said: “We’re very excited to relaunch our monthly market and can’t wait to hear what our customers think about the rebrand.
