Continental flavour returns to Hinckley

October 10, 2007 3:27 PM

THE popular Continental Market makes a welcome return to Hinckley town centre this month, offering shoppers another chance to enjoy a variety of tasty foods and other tempting goods from across Europe.

Staged by the Borough Council and Hinckley Town Centre Partnership, the market will be held in Regent Street on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th October, from 10am to 4pm on both days.

Traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland and Poland will be wearing traditional costumes while they sell high quality products including Brittany biscuits, olives, Swedish cider, Italian nougat, pungent cheeses, saucissons, tartiflette from the Alps, charcuterie, fresh breads and croissants.

Meanwhile, for those 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, there will also a wide range of other products to choose from, including hand bags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children's toys and pashmina.

Councillor Stuart Bray, Executive member for Culture and Development, welcomed the return of the market and said: "Not only is it very popular with shoppers, but the sight of all the different products mixed with the enticing aromas helps to create a wonderful atmosphere in the town."
