Market returns to Hull's Trinity Square
Trinity Square in Hull's Old Town is going back to its roots with a market today.
The 18-stall craft market will run until 4pm and if it is successful organisers are hoping to make it a regular event.
Jule Buffey of Roisin Dubh, a shop in Hepworth Arcade, organised the market, which has been supported by Hull BID and Hull City Council.
Julie said: "We are like a big community in the Old Town and I thought it would be good to get people past the empty shops on Whitefriargate and into the area.

"People come to my shop and say it should be in York but why shouldn't we have nice shops in Hull - and why shouldn't we have a nice craft market?
"There is a lot of creativity in the city and a monthly market here would be brilliant if we get the support."
Stalls include vintage-inspired jewellery, organic and fair trade baby clothes, cakes, gifts and photographic art.
Bronwyn Wilson, 17, Hull's Young Entrepreneur of the Year, has a stall selling her Crazy Critter World cushions, soft toys and fabric goods.
She said: "I think it is a really good idea to have a market here. I don't actually remember when it was here before but my mum and dad told me all about it and people seem to be glad it is back."
Melanie Townsley, of Hull city centre, visited the market with her daughter Amber.
She said: "It is fantastic to see a market here again. When I was little my nana used to bring me and it is fantastic to see it being used as a market square again."
Julie followed advice from Mary Portas and kept fees for stalls low to encourage traders. Money raised from the small fee charged to stall-holders was donated to St Paul's Boxing Amateur Boxing Club
