Trading and merriness abounded at Saturday's Medieval Market at the Levin Showgrounds ''shire''.

The market, boasting about 200 craft and food stalls, as well as entertainment and activities, with a medieval theme attracted thousands of people.

The annual market has been held for nearly 20 years, originally hosted in Manakau for the first 12 years until the event outgrew the village and was relocated to the Levin Showgrounds.

More than $230,000 was been for Horowhenua community groups.
