The annual Barkway Market took place on Saturday and was full to the brim with stallholders and visitors alike.
The market is a highlight in the Barkway calendar – it’s origins of the market can be traced back to 1270 – and has ran in its current form since 1977.
The event at Old Manor Farm was officially opened by county councillor Fiona Hill.
The organising committee’s Edwin Kilby said: “The market is run by a team of volunteers and overseen this year by Nicola Cook, our new market co-ordinator.
“Nicola came forward after reading an appeal on our Facebook page, and she did a fantastic job pulling together our event.”
