Come along to Kettering Market Place for a taste of the Continent
Kettering Market Place will be filled with the delights of the Continent on Thursday 29 Saturday 31 March as the increasingly popular Speciality Market returns for 3 days. Around 20 traders will be offering a variety of foods from European countries like France, Belgium, Germany, Holland.
With over 7 years of experience over France, UK, Germany, Belgium and Italy, Traditional Markets will bring energy and atmosphere to Kettering shopping centre.
Set your senses free to roam through the warm ambiance of the Mediterranean with sun-ripened olives, Parma ham, "saucissons", garlics and fruits from south of France. Invoke images and spark memories of that continental holiday. The crafts and pashminas from Milan. Pass by the pungent cheeses and sample wonderful Spanish paella. Smell the mouth-watering freshness of the bread and croissants baked in front of your eyes and indulge your taste for the exotic with charcuterie, fine pates and smoked sausages from Italy. Grace your kitchen with Mediterranean soaps, tablecloths from Marseille and spoil yourself with homemade biscuits from Brittany, Belgium chocolates, dry fruits from Germany. Fill a gap with a "crêpe", a "Tartiflette" from the Alps or some paella ... and much more to experience!
The market will be located on Market Place on Thursday 29 Saturday 31 March 2012 and open at 9.00am 5.00pm.
Valerie Hitchman Head of Community Services says: "This is the first speciality food market that we have organised since taking on the management of the market. Come along and enjoy the atmosphere."
This event is being organised by Kettering Borough Council and Traditional Markets.
Cllr Ian Jelley: The Speciality Market will be heaven on earth for food lovers, and just a bus ride away, no need for a passport. The popularity of Continental Markets has shown that it brings in visitors from surrounding areas, which must be good for the local economy. Our retailers and traders can use the opportunity to lure new customers to their shops and stalls, show off their wares and entice them back next week, the week after, and the week after that!
With a pleasant setting there is sure to be something to tickle the taste buds.
