Descrição

In a first-ever for Fleet, an International Food Market will set up on Gurkha Square for one day only on Sunday 1st October 2017.

Flavours of the World comprises up to 20 carefully selected international stalls run by international traders who sell top quality artisan-produced foods and craft products from around the world.

You probably love a fresh baguette, enjoy breaking into a warm croissant with apricot conserve, and we all love a warm pain-au-chocolate. But how about trying a crunchy yet airy pain noix? Or a fresh and traditional tarte fraise, ou citron? Or mille feuille the way it is supposed to be done?

Touring different themed markets in the UK annually for over a decade, Savoir Fayre’s latest market, Flavours of the World, is crafted to stir the senses and appeal to locals and visitors alike.

Brought to Fleet by the Fleet Business Improvement District and facilitated in association with Hart District Council its purpose is to showcase Fleet and attract footfall into town from around the region.

The event will be widely promoted and advertised by the organisers and will bring additional Sunday trade for the town's cafe's, bars and restaurants and retail shops. The purpose is to create an international atmosphere so people can enjoy exotic flavours and unusual aromas and delight in products they might not otherwise see or buy everyday.

The manifest for Fleet includes stalls selling Italian sweets and biscuits and delicate nougats; unusual cheeses not easily found in the UK which reflect the cultural and culinary traditions of rural France; and a stall which sells cured meats and scrumptious rustic saucisson sourced from every corner of Europe. There are also specialist stalls offering an unrivalled choice of ground coffee and mustards.

Beyond the stalls that tempt the taste buds, the market has traders who showcase the beauty of international craft traditions. They include bowls and ornaments carved from Moroccan marble; Baltic amber set into handcrafted jewellery; finely woven Italian clothing; and rugs and throws from Morocco and Turkey. One stall sells an astonishing 60 varieties of beauty bars and natural soaps derived from olive and argan oil.

'We delight in bringing stalls which offer unusual goods, a wide choice of products and good value to our customers. We also have a record of bringing a lot of extra footfall to the places we visit which pleases local traders,' says market organiser Conrad Murray. 'That means everyone is happy and we typically establish a strong relationship with our hosts and in many cases our visit becomes a much-looked-forward-to annual event.
