On Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th of May, Wharf Green, Swindon, will be transformed into a bustling European market place.
Professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland wearing traditional costumes will be selling high quality products including Brittany biscuits and olives, Swedish cider, Italian nougat, pungent cheeses, saucissons, Tartiflette from the Alps, charcuterie, fresh breads, croissants and much, much more!
For those with a sweet tooth, there will also be freshly cooked crepes.
All of which can be washed down with wonderful Muscadet wines from a family vineyard in Frontignan.
As well as the fine edible goods, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of products including hand bags & leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender,children toys and pachmina! 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!
All of the traders will also wear their traditional local costume from 100 years ago, as well as decorating their stall to represent the area of the country they have come from.
The market really will therefore provide you with a true flavour of the continent…
