The Halesworth Midsummer Market is taking place this weekend.
The event will showcase local food and drink producers as well as a host of artisan stalls, plants and more.
It is taking place at Halesworth’s historic Market Place - which has been used for markets since it gained its Charter in 1220.
Held tomorrow, June 24, from 9.30am to 3.30pm, the event is a celebration of Midsummer’s Day.
The Fritton Owl Sanctuary will be attending and there will also be a face painting stall.
