A POPULAR open-air market is set to return to Charmouth next month.

Every Monday from May 27 until September, the market will return with traders setting up shop.

Before 2020, the market used to run every week in the village and was popular with tourists and locals.

The market has been brought back by South West Markets and Events who last year also revived the weekly Portland market on a Tuesday.

South West Markets and Events is a family-run business which is run by husband and wife Jack and Rebecca Carter.

Mr Carter said: "The response we have had has been unbelievable and we can tell that the market has been really missed by a lot of people.

"A lot of the old traders who used to sell have come back now so we are ready to hit the ground running."

Mr Carter estimates at least 30 traders will be involved when the market returns next month and said he believes that number will grow before the first day.

The market is free to enter and will be hosted on the field on the junction of The Street and Green Pit Knapp.
