The event will take place in Market Place, on Saturday (April 26).

Market organiser Olivier Simonin said: “We have new professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more countries. They 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 tasty goods, customers 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.

Most of the products on sale will come from each stallholder’s region, where they are produced by small organisations such as family businesses, farms or small factories using traditional methods.

“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,” added Mr Simonin.

“The market will therefore provide you with a true flavour of the continent.”
