Popular French market returns

Published Monday 15 October 2018

The much loved French and Continental market featuring larger than life traders is set to return to Market Harborough after the success of last year's visit.

On Friday 2 November and Saturday 3 November 2018, the town square will once again enjoy the sight of French market traders, the sound of continental accents, 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 market is organised by Harborough District Council to bring more shoppers into the town centre and will see a range of exciting produce on offer.

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 traditional crepe for breakfast?

With stalls featuring fresh bread, cheese, olive oils, charcuterie and traditional tartiflette there will be something to whet everyone’s appetite.

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.

There really will be something for everyone at this event, and plenty of items that would make lovely Christmas gifts so why not come along and say bonjour!

The market is open from 9am to 5.30pm.
