It will be all things festive in Sudbury On Friday and Saturday as the traditional switching of the town’s Christmas lights is boosted by the return of a continental market adding spice to the Christmas Street Fair.
For two days only, North Street will play host to French, Spanish, Italian, British, Moroccan and other nationalities of market traders, with stalls packed with enticing produce.
The market will bring the sights, sounds and scents of an authentic continental market place to the town centre.
It will feature 16 stalls with a wide and varied array of continental merchandise, including French delicatessen charcuterie and cured meat, French cheeses, saucisson, crepes and bread, Spanish paella and fajita, Moroccan couscous, Italian confectionery and more.
The market will also feature fashion items such as hats, scarves, belts, handbags, and purses.
There will also be objets d’arts and collectibles including wood carvings, glass, fossils, mineral specimens and jewellery.
The town’s lights will be switched on by Sudbury mayor Jack Owen and Louie Arnold, 11, the winner of the annual Christmas Card competition.
The market is open 10am to 9pm Friday and 9am to 5pm on Saturday.
