This is a quick post to highlight the fact that Walsall's award-winning Night Market is to return this the town centre this evening from 5pm to 9pm.
There will be loads of local traders, great food and entertainment. The excellent local artisan bakers Slow Loaf will be there, as will Banyan Tree Rustics who were present at the first event, and whose beautiful rag dolls I fell in love with.
John Burnett from Walsall Council contacted me:
Hope you don’t mind me sending you the info on the next Walsall Night Market to put on your blog?
Also to let you know, Banyan Tree Rustics are back this time with their handmade dolls, you will be able to find them on the same stall as October.

Councillor Adrian Andrew, Walsall Council deputy leader, said: 'There's not long to go now until the next night market and I'm delighted once again to see what a wide variety of stalls we have lined up.
'The two previous night market events have had a really positive impact on the town in terms of helping put it on the map and drawing people in from further afield and I'm sure this one will continue to build on that.'
The night market has, on average, attracted around 1,500 people and drawn widespread acclaim winning NAMBA's Best Speciality Market of the Year 2013.
