Justine Paul, owner of Suffolk Market Events, said: "It’s so important to maintain Ipswich as a fun and vibrant town and these markets will create a great atmosphere on the Cornhill – hopefully as part of the growing excitement of the rejuvenation of the centre of Ipswich.

"I’m sure everyone will enjoy the mix of stalls and there is some really tasty food to enjoy on the day."
