In Bridgnorth, High Street Sunday 20th October, 9am-5pm
Come and sample the delights of the Continent!
The city centre will be transformed into a bustling market place. Professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more countries 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, croissants and much, much more!
Or, for those of you with a sweet tooth, there will also be freshly made crepes.
As well as all of these delectable tasty goods, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of products including hand bags & 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...
