ALMOST 70 independent traders will descend upon Birchwood Shopping Centre, as the artisan markets return once again.

The markets, organised by Independent Street, aim to showcase the very best of local independent produce.

Whether hand-baked goods, sweet treats, or arts and crafts, there is always something for everyone at the markets.

"We will be showcasing both inside the mall and outside Entrance Four.
