Christmas farmers' and craft market
FESTIVE FARE: It was a lovely sunny day and stalls lined Somerset Square and along the High Street which was closed to traffic for one day only. Nailsea Cider had to re-stock before noon as they had sold out of presentation boxes and the butcher sold all his pheasants but there were some brussel sprouts still on offer on the vegetable stand!
