The market was available in Princess Royal Square from Wednesday to Sunday, where there were a host of stalls to browse and buy from.

Visitors could pick up a range of food and drink, including an assortment of cheese from the Great British Cheese Company, German hot dogs and Greek souvlaki.

French crepes were also served up, alongside bags of coffee from around the world.

People could also buy gifts, trinkets and crafts to take home with them.

It is the first time the event has been held in the town, and organisers said it was a ‘quality addition to the already-bustling line-up of attractions’ in Weston.

The continental street market is taken around the country, with some of its next dates set for Croydon in London and New Brighton in Merseyside.
