The market is a celebration of artisan local food, drink and craft that is exhibited at the two monthly markets held in the Square throughout the year.

Organiser Stuart Jones said: "Shrewsbury Farmers Market on the first Friday of the month and Made In Shropshire on the second Saturday of the month showcase the very best of quality products this area provides.

"We only invite local producers to sustain the local economy and these producers brave all the elements thrown at them during the year."
