Autumn market returns with food and gift ideas

Published Wednesday 3 November 2021

An Autumn Market is returning to Market Harborough offering a wide selection of freshly prepared street foods, artisan grocery products, arts, crafts, clothing and accessories.

The event, organised by Zoom Events, in partnership with Harborough District Council, will take place on Friday 5 November, Saturday 6 November and to Sunday 7 November 2021.

The market will feature local traders, and those from a little further afield, as it returns to the town following the pandemic.

Autumn market gift ideas

Visitors to the market will be able to choose from a host of foodie products. These include pork or chicken souvlaki, German sausages, crepes made from seasonal, organic and fair-trade ingredients plus traditional Thai, Chinese, Mexican and Japanese street foods. Among groceries to take home will be fine cheeses, olives, Turkish delight, samosas, award winning preserves and much more.

For those seeking unusual homeware, gifts or doing some early Christmas shopping there will be a large selection of stalls selling unique arts, crafts, clothing, decorations and accessories. There will also be handcrafted Christmas gifts and Italian clothing to Portuguese crafts, and lots more gift ideas.

Cllr Phil King, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “This is yet another exciting event in the district, adding to the diversity of markets we’ve recently hosted. All the signs are that our events are helping to attract back visitors and residents into our town centres. Not only will visitors be able to sample the delights of the market, they will importantly visit other local shops and hospitality outlets, as they continue to grow back from the effects of the pandemic.”

Paul Kennedy, Director of Zoom Events, said: “We are looking forward to returning to Market Harborough with a strong line up of stalls which will add extra colour and character to the centre of town. It’s fantastic that we can hold the market again following the successful vaccination rollout after a difficult 18 months.”

The Market Harborough Autumn Market will be open on Friday 5 November from 11am – 6pm, Saturday 6 November 9am – 6pm and Sunday 7 November 10am – 5pm.
