In photos: Sunday markets make a successful return in Highbridge

Shoppers flocked to a new outdoor market in Highbridge on Sunday (November 1st), which returned to the town after several months' absence.

Burnham-On-Sea.com reported last month how Sedgemoor District Council had signed a deal with a company called Market Forces to re-introduce the weekly Sunday markets at Bank Street car park on a three-month trial basis.

No Sunday markets had been held in Highbridge since the closure of the nearby cattle market site for development.

However, the new market was busy with shoppers when Burnham-On-Sea.com visited it on Sunday, as pictured here.

Stalls selling meat, cheese, refreshments, clothes and gifts were set up in the car park.

Tim Mander from Sedgemoor District Council, pictured top with Mark Miller from Market Forces, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's been a good first day for the market. A steady flow of people have been visiting and spending money. It's really positive for Highbridge."

Burnham-On-Sea.com first reported on plans to introduce a market in the car park in June this year.
