The popular markets are due to return on Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29.

The deadline for the first wave of applications is August 14.

After this date stalls will be allocated, and the town council aims to let successful applicants know the outcome of their application by September 11.

After August 14 the council will continue to accept applications to fill the remaining stalls until the market is full.
