Market stalls have begun making preparations for one of the East of England’s largest festive markets in a tiny village of just 30 residents.

In less than two months the Deepdale Christmas Market will welcome more than 120 local producers to the coastal village of Burnham Deepdale where they will open stalls for the market’s ninth year running.

For many of them it will not be their first time at the market, with favourites returning including Candi’s Chutney, James Buttifant’s penguins, Marsh Pig and Nelson & Norfolk Tea Company.

Organiser Jason Borthwick said: “Visitors will recognise the usual setup with a few major improvements for this ninth annual market. Regulars will know we adjust the stalls each year, so no tent is ever quite the same.”

The market takes place Friday December 1 until Sunday December 3. Stalls open from 10am to 5pm each day.
