HUNDREDS of people walked through the doors of a new food market in Clevedon as it opened for its first week of business.
The Food Market @ Seeleys proved a huge success as customers could, for the first time, sample and buy some of the items on offer from a number of local producers.
The Hill Road market has been set up by a group of five women who either own or work in other shops in the popular shopping street.
They have sought to provide a venue in which people can buy locally-sourced meat, vegetables, bread, cakes, cheese and other items including flowers in their local high street.
An official opening was held on Thursday and it held its first official trading day on Saturday.

“On Saturday, the cheese man completely sold out, we sold out of our pies and bread within the first two hours and the flower girl also sold out of her produce. I think it is going to be a huge success and I am very excited.”
The market will be open every Tuesday and Saturday from now on and its creators eventually hope to expand its opening to more days during the week.
