Traditional European Food and Craft Fair. New tastes, new crafts as Market brings Continental style to town.
The town centre will come alive with the tastes, smells and products of Continental Europe - and beyond - when the Traditional European Food and Craft Fair arrives in town.
The town centre will be transformed into more of a bustling market place than ever before, as the marketers build on the success of their visits in earlier years.
Market organiser Olivier Simonin says: "We have new professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more countries who will be wearing traditional costumes, selling high quality products including Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, delectable cheeses, sausages, tartiflette (a delicious cheese and potatoes dish from the Alps), charcuterie, fresh bread, and croissants!
This year, we have some new exciting stalls: German salami, Finnish crafts, Peruvian handicrafts, Italian macaroons and Paris handbags.
As well as all of these delectable tasty goods, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of products including handbags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children’s toys and pashminas! There really will be something for everyone!
Most of the products on sale will come from each stall holder’s region, where they are produced by small organisations such as, family businesses, farms or small factories using traditional methods, maintaining a high standard of quality!
All of the traders will also wear their traditional local costumes from 100 years ago, as well as decorating their stall to represent the region of the country they come from. The market will therefore provide you with a true flavour of the continent.”
