A landmark building on North Street is being given a new lease of life.
Half of the ground floor of the Tobacco Factory was most recently occupied by the Thali restaurant until it closed suddenly in June.
From November, it will become a six-day a week makers market, while also hosting a Five Acre Farm stall and cafe.
Produce from Five Acre Farm – owned by the Tobacco Factory and managed by former cafe-bar manager Jonathan Boundy – is already available at the Sunday market.
It currently grows the likes of tomatoes, aubergines and cucumbers; keeps bees and chickens; and has plans to produce its own honey straight from its beehives.
Plans for the building on North Street alo include workshops for everything from dressmakers to printers, jewellers, woodworkers and florists.
