The launch of Hailsham Street Market saw 21 stalls offering a wide range of products and a steady stream of customers despite the atrocious weather.
The market in Vicarage Fields is one of the projects Hailsham Forward is working on to help improve the image of Hailsham and attract more shoppers into the town centre.
On Saturday hundreds of people attended the market where they perused stalls selling fruit and vegetables, pet food and pet supplies, homemade cakes, pies and pasties, handbags and accessories, liqueurs, homemade chocolates, cheeses, flowers and plants, locally made jams and preserves, handmade jewellery and gift items.
There was traditional ice creams and sweets on sale throughout the day, as well as face painting and children’s entertainment.
Hailsham Town Mayor, Councillor Jo Bentley, officiated over the launch of the market and cut a special cake at 10am to declare it open to the public.
