IF you've never ordered a marsh mallow hot chocolate from the back of a horsebox, this Saturday is your chance.

Drinks and gifts vendor Primrose 1510 will be serving drinks, nibbles and festive foodie gifts from a beautifully converted horse trailer at the Burley-in-Wharfedale Christmas Market on Saturday, December 2 from 2pm to 5.30pm.

The quirky stallholder will join a line up of more conventional stalls selling a range of artisan gifts, food and drink.

The street market, run by Burley and District Chamber of Trade (BADCOT) since 2003, takes place on the same afternoon as the Christmas Lights On, organised by the Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust (BWCT) for 4.30pm. There will also be a craft fair selling a wide range of handcrafted items in Queen's Hall, Main Street, from 1pm.

Entertainment for the popular event, attended by thousands, will include a magician, Father Christmas, children's rides, a steam engine plus performances by community choirs and a ukulele band.

Co-owner Samantha Green, of Bradley, near Skipton, said it was the first market that she and her partner Reg Best, had visited with their horsebox – known as Primrose – since her conversion.

Samantha said: "We only set up a few months ago and have so far been taking Primrose to private events only. But we thought it would be good for her to meet more people – and where better than Burley's Christmas market, which attracts a great crowd."

BADCOT market co-ordinator Danny Schofield added: "We're chuffed to bits to welcome Primrose and her owners on their first trip to market and know visitors will be excited to buy a mince pie or two from her!

"Primrose 1510 is one of many businesses bringing delicious fare and interesting gifts on Saturday. And with all the fantastic entertainment lined up, it's a must-do afternoon out for families and friends."

All proceeds from the street market go to the BWCT Christmas Lights Fund.
