Clitheroe Country Market is welcoming residents to a special Christmas event this weekend.

Shoppers can browse the market and support the local businesses who will have stalls there on the day.

The market, which is being held in Clitheroe United Reformed Church on Moor Lane, will offer an assortment of unique products from homemade and handcrafted jewellery to plants and flowers.

Taking place tomorrow (November 26), the market will also provide baked goods like cakes, pies, and bread as well as jars of preserves, mince pies and seasonal jellies which would make perfect gifts.

The market will be open from 10am to 4pm so there’s plenty of time to take a trip down during the day.

Refreshments including tea and coffee will be available, as well as the popular cake of the day, buttered scones and soup.

A spokesperson for Clitheroe Country Market said: "Country Market members are busy taking orders for special, home baked Christmas cakes and creating crafty stocking fillers.

"There will be an array of seasonal baking and home made preserves, hand crafted present ideas – textiles, knits, prints and jewellery as well as a fantastic range of original winter cards.

"We love the chance of a Saturday market as we get to meet customers who can’t manage to make our regular Tuesday mornings.

"So spread the word and come and join us – there will be the usual tea, coffee and homemade cake along with some light lunch options and a warm welcome."

The event is free of charge and there is a disabled access to the church.

The Clitheroe Country Market is held every Tuesday in the same venue from 9.30am to 12pm until December 13.
