The minister met market staff and trustees over a cup of tea at Maria's Market Cafe before touring some of the stalls.

The visit was intended to support the Love Your Local Market campaign, a nationwide drive to put "buzz and excitement into the market scene".

Love Your Local Market started in 2012 in response to the Mary Portas review of high streets.
