A CAFE in Mistley will be transformed into a bustling Christmas market hosting a wide range of makers selling their creations.

Tea At The Quay co-owners Matt Rozier and Chris Quilter have teamed up with Rhianna Essex from Colchester’s Love Local gift emporium to bring together a curated collection of stalls showcasing gifts and products.

The inaugural event was held last year.

This year’s market will be held on Friday, December 8, from 5pm to 9pm at Tea At The Quay, which is located inside Mistley Quay Workshops on the High Street 

Tea At The Quay co-owner Matt Rozier said “We love putting on this event. It’s a brilliant opportunity for local people to put their spending power to good use with local businesses. 

“All the money spent at the market will go home with local traders from our community, helping them have a great Christmas too. 

“After the success of last year’s market, we were very keen to put it on again this year and we’re delighted to say that our traders were keen to return to make it another magical evening. 

“Who knows, maybe Santa will make another visit to us again this year?”

The market’s stalls will be inside the cafe and foyer, with the food court situated outside.
