A NEW “foodmarket” selling local produce has opened alongside the popular farmcafé in Marlesford.

Following months of building work, owners Paul and Linda Thomas welcomed shoppers to the new food market on Main Road in the village for the first time on Thursday.

Local producers and suppliers came out in force to promote their wares in the 'tasting tent' and the launch event was rounded off with a party in the café with music and refreshments.

“We have always been passionate about using local and homemade produce in our café and this, together with locally produced fresh farm produce, will now be on sale in the food market,” said Mrs Thomas.

The couple was keen to open the food market in time for Christmas trade, she added.
