Description

International Food Market for Taunton's Castle Green

Castle Green, Taunton will be the venue for our "Flavours of the World" event on Thursday to Saturday 21st - 23rd September when our international touring market will fill the entire square with stalls selling top quality artisan-produced foods and craft products from around the world

Set against the wonderful background of the world-famous historic Castle Hotel which has been a destination for people who seek out quality produce for generations, this colourful international market comprises carefully selected stalls crafted to stir the senses and appeal to locals and tourists alike.

'Our traders work hard 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 on a market every day' says Conrad Murray for Market Organiser Savoir Fayre.

'The manifest for Dorchester includes stalls selling Italian sweets and biscuits and delicate nougats; unusual cheeses not easily found in the UK which reflect the cultural and culinary traditions of rural France; and a stall which sells cured meats and scrumptious rustic saucisson sourced from every corner of Europe. There are also specialist stalls offering an unrivalled choice of ground coffee and mustards.'

'All of our traders are especially chosen for the knowledge of and passion they have for the products they sell and their delight in offering tastings and explaining the particular characteristics and features of the goods they sell'

And 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.

'We delight in bringing stalls which offer unusual goods, a wide choice of products and good value to our customers. We also have a record of bringing a lot of extra footfall to the places we visit which pleases local traders,' says Mr Murray. 'That means everyone is happy and we typically establish a strong relationship with our hosts and in many cases our visit becomes a much-looked-forward-to regular event.
