Tasty treats from across the country and the best of local products were on display.

Stalls included one for Lytham-based Olive Tree Brasserie who are preparing to open in the Miller Arcade.

Their stall was one of many who saw a famous face visiting from the foodie world as Jean-Christophe Novelli dropped by to lend his support to the market.

Highlights of the market included the local sausages which Blog Preston contributor Louise Hogg tweeted to show how they turned out for her tea that evening.

Strong winds didn’t hamper the turnout to the market, organised by Preston’s Business Improvement District, which avoided any major downpours.
