New Continental food fair for Whitehaven

A slice of continental life will come to Whitehaven this month with a new food and craft fair.

The traditional European fair will bring food and produce from across Europe to the town, with the centre transformed into a bustling marketplace.

Organisers Traditional Market, who have been running the markets in the UK for the past nine years and in Scandinavia for four, said they had a host of suppliers lined up from across France, Spain, Italy and Holland, among others.

Olivier Simonin said they were building on the success of their visits to other places.

“We have new professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more countries who will be wearing traditional costumes and selling high quality products,” he said.

Goods on offer include Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, cheeses, sausages, and tartiflette – a cheese and potato dish from the Alps.

Non-food items include Dutch flowers, amber jewellery, handbags, Marseille soaps, lavender, children’s toys and pashminas.

Most of the products on sale come from each stall holder’s region, where they are produced by small organisations such as family businesses or farms.

The market, which is free, will be in Whitehaven from June 20-22.

These days I don't think they're worth the expense

Love them - but they shouldn't be switched on until December
