STALLHOLDERS and customers have celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Dunmow Country Market.
Dunmow mayor Clive Smith turned out to formally open the doors and cut the birthday cake at Catholic Church Hall on Mill Lane.
Market goers then browsed the stalls in the same way that they have done for three decades.
Market manager, Brenda Scraggs, said: "It is amazing that we have been going so long. We used to be called the Dunmow WI market, but changed our name a few years ago to attract more custom.

Fresh vegetables, homemade cakes, pies, eggs are available from the market, along with crafts, flowers and plants. Some of the ladies also serve tea for the shopper who needs refreshment.

The market runs every Thursday from 9.30am until 11.30am.
