The Made In North Somerset Showcase will be held at Court House Farm, in Church Road South, on Sunday from 10am-4pm.

More than 60 stalls will be dotted around the courtyards, showing off the best creations North Somerset has to offer.

A mouth-watering selection of food traders will serve up tasty treats including stone-baked pizza, smoked barbecue meats and charcuterie.

There will be a sumptuous selection of cheese, bread and pastries to gorge on – plus a marvellous medley of alcoholic beverages to wash it down with.

Revellers will also have the chance to browse a huge collection of delicately-created crafts including ceramics, furniture and jewellery.

Musical performances from the Barnacle Buoys, storytelling by Michael Loader and stage skits from Theatre Orchard are certain to entertain the crowd.

Helen Reed, custodian of Court House Farm, is ‘honoured’ the venue will host the event, and encouraged people to sample the delights on offer.

She said: “We’re terribly excited to host the event.

“There will be very established talents and new talents showcasing their creations, and it is a must for people to come and have a look.

“There will be a fantastic selection of food, wine and beer, plus artisan drinks of excellent quality.

“There will also be a range of talented craft creators and an excellent cross section of talent on show.”

The event is orchestrated by North Somerset Council and Elfan Ap Rees, the authority’s executive member for economic development, called on people to support the district’s small businesses.

He said: “The market just goes to show how many high-quality and award-winning products are made in North Somerset, from the artisan business selling locally to those who export worldwide.

“This is a great opportunity to support local businesses.”

Entry costs £1 and a programme for the event is available by logging on to www.innorthsomerset.co.uk/get-involved/MadeinNS
