VISITORS and residents alike enjoyed the award-winning Shoreham Farmers’ Market on Saturday.

With attendance in the thousands and more than 60 stalls, the market has twice been awarded Sussex Best Farmers’ Market since its humble beginnings in July 2001, and has been nominated again this year.

David Steadman, Adur town centre co-ordinator, said: “My role is to get people to come to the town centre to support the businesses in the town and help them grow their customer base.”

He added that there is an increase of 30 to 40 per cent in business due to the number of people who come into the town on the days when the market is held.

The stalls boast everything from vegetables and meat, to cakes and drinks. The market is held on East Street every second Saturday of the month between 9am and 1pm, and attracts people from far and wide to Shoreham.

There is also an Artisan’s Market which is held every fourth Saturday of the month from 9am to 2pm on East Street.
