Saffron Walden's historic market is competing in this year's Great British Market Awards.

Shoppers across the country have already started voting for Britain's Favourite Market, a competition run by The National Association of British Markets (NABMA).

Voting closes on December 13.

Terry Frostick, operations and market manager at Saffron Walden Town Council, said: "I am very excited about this.

"It would be wonderful achievement to get recognition for all our stallholders and the Town Council team."

On November 15, NAMBA revealed that Saffron Walden is a top-20 contender for the award against competition in Cardiff, Chester, Macclesfield and Swansea.

In its submission to NABMA, Saffron Walden Town Council noted that the market is a boost to the economy and is seen as the "heart of the town".

Terry and his colleagues won NABMA's Market Team of the Year 2021 award in October.
