For food-lovers there will be a chance to buy a whole range of delights including Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, pungent cheeses, aromatic garlic, saucissons, Tartiflette from the Alps, charcuterie, fresh breads, croissants, bagels and much more.
Or, for those of you wanting something a bit stronger there will be a range of Normandy ciders and calvados available.
As well as the fine edible goods, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of products including hand bags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children's toys and pachminas, wooden arts and crafts. There really will be something for everyone.
Most of the products on sale will come from 'the terroir' (the land) of the stall holder, where they are produced by small organisations such as family businesses, farms or small factories using traditional methods, maintaining a high standard of quality.
The market will run from 9am until 5.30pm.
