All the businesses and groups involved are from Brandon and the nearby surrounding area.
John Griffiths, Leader of West Suffolk Council, said: “Christmas will of course feel different this year but I am delighted that we will still be able to enjoy some of the atmosphere of the season by shopping at our local markets. Being held safely, and outside, provides another way for us to support our local businesses and high streets, and I hope that many will do so at this special and important time of year.”
