Felixstowe: Taste of continent is on offer at food fair

Visitors to Felixstowe seafront will be able to enjoy a traditional European food and craft fair this month.

The event is coming to the prom and gardens in Sea Road from Thursday, August 16, to Sunday, August 19.

Market organiser Olivier Simonin said the aim was to give a true flavour of the continent.

“We have new professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more countries,” she said.

“They will be wearing traditional costumes from 100 years ago, as well as decorating their stall to represent the region of the country they come from.

“Stalls will be selling high quality products including Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, delectable cheeses, sausages, tartiflette – a delicious cheese and potatoes dish from the Alps – and charcuterie, fresh bread, and croissants.”

New stalls added to the travelling market this year include German salami, Finnish crafts, Peruvian handicrafts, Italian macaroons and Paris handbags.
