A massive Christmas fair will see over 120 stalls on show for its third outing.

Husband and wife team, Mark and Meryl Raines and the the owners of MJR events, are bringing the Norfolk Artisan Fair at Christmas to Fakenham Racecourse on November 11 and 12.

The event was debuted in 2021 by the couple, who also bring a spring event to the market town.

Once again, the number of stall holders has increased as good word for the event has spread.

“It is a really good sign, and considering all the Christmas fairs around the region, for us to still be so popular is great,” Mr Raines said.

“The majority of the stall holders come back every year, which speaks for itself, the fact that 75pc return year on year is really good, it shows that it is an event they want to be at.

“Plus, with ticket purchases trickling in, I believe it shows that we have become an event that people and sellers consider unmissable.

“It also shows even though a lot of people are cutting back, people will spend the money on quality products which the market offers, and they want to support local businesses.”

Local vendors will be showcasing their offers of food, drinks and handcrafted gifts, with sellers all from East Anglia, with Mr Raines being proud of the fair's local focus.

There will also be food on sale, with everything from Thai to gourmet burgers.

Exhibitors are starting to be announced on the fair’s social media, highlighting some names coming along.

Currently, Mr Raines is selecting the last few stalls to feature, as he wants to make sure customers have a wide choice.
