Preston’s popular Lancashire Market returns for its summer date with the city.Advertisement
A selection of stalls, smaller than at previous events, lined both sides of Friargate.
Organised by Preston Business Improvement District there was Indian street food, enormous pies and birds of prey to enjoy and sample.
Turbary Woods brought their owls for children and adults to hold and there was also a reptile experience with a chameleon wowing the crowds.
Mark Whittle from Preston BID said: “We have brought the date forward slightly compared to previous years during the summer. This was after consultation with the traders.
“Fortunately the weather has played ball and it’s good to see so many people out supporting Preston and Lancashire traders.”
BBC Lancashire’s John Gillmore was on the microphone making announcements during the market, which runs until 4pm on Saturday (30 July).
The market did not extend to the top end of Friargate as it has during previous events, Preston BID said they had been advised works by utility companies on underground cables would be taking place – but these had not gone ahead.
Here’s a selection of what we saw at the market:
