The market brings together a range of local food and artisan producers as well as some crafters to offer a "great" shopping experience for visitors to the coast.

Beach Street Felixstowe, which is now an established venue with a number of pop food outlets and shops, provided the "perfect" backdrop, ensuring every visitor had a wide range of stalls to browse.

Stalls featured plenty of locally sourced produce, including craft ales from The Old Felixstowe Brewery and baked treats from Alex Artisan Bakery among many others.
