Visitors can choose from a selection of freshly-prepared hot food including churros, halloumi burgers or fries, Mexican dishes and Japanese street food. The selection of artisan groceries will be equally varied including sweet treats such as chocolate bars, fudge and gourmet doughnuts to continental cheeses, olives and Indian meals.

Cllr Phil King, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “We’re pleased to once again host this popular market, in partnership with Zoom Events, adding to our already diverse range of regular markets. As well as enjoying great food and everything else on offer, it will also bring people into the town centre which is great for all local businesses.”

Visitors will find interesting items for the home or unique gift ideas with stall holders displaying items from around the globe including Tanzanian crafts, Italian clothing and Indian rugs as well as fragrance lamps, candles and novelty garden items handmade locally in the UK.

Paul Kennedy, Director of Zoom Events, said: “We are looking forward to returning to Market Harborough where our markets have received a warm welcome from local people over several years. Following the lifting of Covid restrictions we are delighted to be hosting an extended Spring Market. We are always able to attract great quality and choice of stalls to our Market Harborough Markets, creating a broad, varied line up.”
