In a supporting statement submitted to Fife Council planners, Ms Nelson said five vendors were already interested in taking a stall, selling everything from home baking to crafts and jewellery. She also has the backing of Culross Community Council.

Sarah Purves, the council planner tasked with assessing the application, has signed it off with provisions restricting the market to the specified opening hours.

Ms Nelson can operate the market for three years, after which it will be subject to a review.
