A popular street food market returned to Maidenhead in a new location on Friday last week after relocating because of disgruntled traders.
Four stalls set up shop at the Boy and Boat statue in the High Street where they served a variety of freshly prepared dishes throughout the day.
The market moved from its original location in King Street after a petition was drawn up by surrounding businesses who said it was stealing their trade.
Organiser Esther Brienza, who set up and funded the festival single-handedly, said she was happy with the new site and was looking forward to working with surrounding businesses.
"There is some wonderful traders out there and some local people as well," she said.
"It is about working together and making a nice atmosphere."
She also confirmed that if the market were to continue growing it could become a weekly fixture.
