Gerard Richardson MBE said: "These markets have been growing in popularity and it’s lovely to welcome the traders and shoppers alike.

"It puts a bit of much needed life in the town centre so I’m going to miss them for the next three months. I definitely need to stock up and I hope a few others have the same idea."

The final Market of the year is the Christmas one on Friday, December 2. 

If any Cumbrian food or craft business would like a free space at future markets, they can contact Gerard or email
