More than 20 stalls are expected to attend, selling everything from bread and meat to cupcakes and jewellery.

Northumberland Poultry will be taking orders for Christmas turkeys, geese and guinea fowl, Grandma’s Recipes will accept orders for Christmas cakes and there will be craft stalls presenting gift ideas. Barnacre Alpacas will be taking along some of their alpacas and Party Animals will present a mobile zoo, including chipmunks, tarantulas and snails.

There will also be facepainting and glitter tattoos.

The monthly market will enjoy an extended trading day, from 9am to 4pm, in the Market Place on Saturday.
