Event description

Description

The days may be getting shorter and darker as winter comes, but here’s something to lighten the gloom - an exotic French and continental market featuring larger than life traders is set to arrive back in Market Harborough in November for the first time since last year!

You probably love a fresh baguette, enjoy breaking into a warm croissant with apricot conserve, and we all love a warm pain-au-chocolate. But how about trying a crunchy yet airy pain noix? Or a fresh and traditional tarte fraise, ou citron? Or mille feuille the way it is supposed to be done?

On Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th November, the town centre will once again enjoy the sight of French market traders, the sound of French accents (as well as some from Spain Italy, Morocco and other exotic locations), and the aromas of freshly prepared French foods as a popular and colourful array of continental market traders descend on Market Harborough for two lively days.

The purpose is to create an international atmosphere so people can enjoy exotic flavours and unusual aromas and delight in products they might not otherwise see or buy everyday.

Beyond the stalls that tempt the taste buds, the market has traders who showcase the beauty of international craft traditions. They include bowls and ornaments carved from Moroccan marble; Baltic amber set into handcrafted jewellery; finely woven Italian clothing; and rugs and throws from Morocco and Turkey. One stall sells an astonishing 60 varieties of beauty bars and natural soaps derived from olive and argan oil.
