Cllr Sue Lissimore, Portfolio Holder for Resources, said: “This is the first of what we hope will become an annual festive market in the heart of Colchester. We want to give artists, craftspeople, growers, makers and producers the opportunity to showcase and sell their wares and we’re so pleased to have so many local stall holders at this first event. With everything sourced or made locally, it’s sure to get shoppers in the festive spirit as they search for the perfect gifts for their loved ones.”
