SUMMER is on its way, and with it come the usual intoxicating colours, scents and sights associated with this time of year - and local shoppers can expect just the same when French and continental market traders return for three days for their annual visit to Saffron Walden.

From Friday 7th- Sunday 9th June, Saffron Walden will host a French market featuring some of the best French and continental market traders around – for any Saffron Walden locals who’ve never sampled a French market before then this is the perfect opportunity to do so right on their own doorsteps!

Organised by international market event operators Savoir Fayre Ltd, this ever-lively and colourful travelling market arrives back in Saffron Walden for the first time since last June as part of its annual tour of the Home Counties, London, the Midlands, East Anglia and the South Coast.

Whilst composed mainly of French traders, the market also features traders from other countries, including Italy, Spain and the UK, all of whom are handpicked for their experience and professionalism and the quality and popularity of their merchandise. The sights, sounds and aromas will entice town centre shoppers, and the stalls will be packed to bursting with authentic, top quality, mouth-watering delicacies. There’ll also be a range of facinating arts and crafts and objets d’art to pick and choose from, including Baltic amber jewellery, crystals, fossils and Balinese crafts.

There’ll be a French delicatessen stall, with a range of exquisite artisanal terrines, patés, charcuterie and cured meats. There’ll be freshly baked bread and the finest French cheese and sausages (saucissons). There’ll be fresh olives and pasta, and for those who get irrresistibly peckish whilst looking around there’ll be paella, chicken fajitasand hog roast sandwiches – and that’s just for starters!

For the kids and those of a more sweet-toothed disposition, there’ll be no end of temptations, including croissants and crépes (both sweet and savoury), Italian confectionery, candy, fudge, pastries, viennoiserie, baklava, nougat, Turkish Delight and fruit & nuts.

It’s all top quality, fresh and totally authentic food, with traditional ingredients and flavours that haven’t changed for generations and can’t be bettered.
