"Many of the traders were close to selling out which clearly shows an ‘appetite’ for these types of events.

"We spoke to a lot of the visitors on the day, many from Preston as you’d expect, but a lot that had travelled to the city centre from across Lancashire to see this event in action, and explore what Preston has to offer in a wider sense."

Taking to social media, a spokesman for the Makers Market said: "A massive thank you for welcoming us with open arms, our traders have been overwhelmed with your support for our first Makers Market in Preston."
