A number of new businesses have opened stalls in Newport Market since it re-opened in March.

The multi-million-pound market is home to many successful independent businesses and a popular spot for socialising and shopping. Here's the latest additions to the market.

The delicious family-run cake shop located on the edge of the market, opposite the bus station, opened on September 17.

It has only been in business for two weeks and is seeing a surge in business.

Owner Sarah Slade said: “The opening was amazing, it was heaving in here which was good. It was a sell out on Saturday and Sunday, and we had great support from the market and people.
