Clitheroe Gears Up for Continental MarketPublished Tuesday, 16 September 2014
Paella, perogi and posh pork pies – Clitheroe is gearing up for its second continental market.
The market has been organised by Ribble Valley Borough Council in association with Geraud Markets, which manages 55 continental markets across the country, as well as the famous Covent Garden Sunday Market.
Over 30 stallholders from across Europe have already lined up to take part in the three-day bonanza, which will feature fine foods, including French creperie, German sausages, Polish perogi and Spanish paella, and top quality artisan items, such as Balkan amber jewellery and Italian scarves.
Clitheroe Market is also expected to open for the duration of the event.
Ribble Valley Borough Council deputy leader Simon Hore, who is chairman of the borough’s economic development working group, said: “Clitheroe is famed for its independent retailers, while the Ribble Valley Food Trail and Clitheroe Food Festival attract thousands of food enthusiasts to the borough every year.
“We launched this year's summer season with the town’s first continental market, which was a great success, attracting thousands of enthusiastic shoppers to the town, and are we are inviting residents from across Lancashire to join us for what promises to be an even bigger and better event, with some exciting products up for grabs.”
The market will run from 9.00am to at least 5.00pm each day.
