Continental market to be held in Settle
9:00am Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
Settle town centre will be transformed into a bustling continental market place on Sunday, October 13.
Professional market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many others will be wearing traditional costumes and selling high quality products.
Treats such as Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, delectable cheeses, sausages, tartiflette (a delicious cheese and potato dish from the Alps), charcuterie, fresh bread, croissants and much more will be on offer.
Or, for those with a sweet tooth, there will also be freshly made crepes.
There will also be a wide range of non-food products including handbags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children’s toys and pashminas.
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, to give a true flavour of the continent.
The market runs from 9am to 5pm.
