SAMPLE the delights of the continent, as Saffron Walden hosts its first-ever three-day continental market from May 20.
The town will transform from its usual bustling Englishness to an internationally themed market as traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland and Poland, wearing traditional costumes, sell products including Britanny biscuits, olives, Swedish cider, Italian nougat, pungent cheeses, saucissons, tartiflette from the Alps, charcuterie, fresh breads, croissants and much, much more.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, there will also be freshly cooked crepes. All of which can be washed down with wonderful muscadet wines from a family vineyard in Frontignan.
As well as the fine edible goods, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of products including hand bags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children toys and pashmina.
