Market To Get International Flavour

A continental market in Coventry is taking on a global look this week as it expands it take on stalls from Vietnam and Egypt.

The market, which has been traditionally European, will add its new flavour in the city centre from Thursday to Sunday.

Stalls will be placed in Smithford Way and Market Way and will boast goods including herbs and spices, cow and goat cheese, sausages, meats and a variety of breads.

Those with a sweet tooth should look out for the jams and honeys and the freshly made pancakes and waffles.

Also on sale will be hats, pottery, basketware, bronze statues, Egyptian art, French soap and even wooden flowers.

Gillian Lawless from the City Centre Company, which organises the market with French Continental Markets said:

"We are really looking forward to what will be our first International Market.

"It is always nice to have a taste of Europe in the city centre, but extending this to incorporate a global feel is really special.

"By inviting people to sell goods from all over the world, the city will have even more of an international feel to it and events such as this really help to put Coventry on the map.

Last month a German market had to be cancelled following hostility to the traders in the fall-out of BMW's sale of Rover.
