The tastes and smells of Normandy return to Stony Stratford next weekend when a French traders’ food and craft market from Normandy visits the town again.
Cheeses from all regions of France will be available together with bread and croissants cooked on site.
A charcuterie will be selling cooked meats and Normandy pâté. Sausages, mustards, olives, sweets, nuts, Turkish delight, dried fruits and oriental pastries are also on the menu. No French market would be complete without crepes and take-away food too.
As well as food the market, at Odells Yard in the High Street, will feature craft items with soaps from Marseille, tablecloths, aprons, scarves, jewellery and handbags.
David Odell sais: “This is very exciting for Stony Stratford. We already have a Saturday market and a farmers’ market each month in the town and Odells Yard holds several specialist markets during the year. We always look forward to welcoming the French retailers and they have proved to be very popular. “Stony Stratford is different, its shops are different and what they stock is different from the average high street. We’re offering yet another different shopping experience and we’re sure that our customers will enjoy the opportunities it brings. As we say in Stony: “vive la difference!”
The market will run from 9am until 4pm on Saturday, July 21 at Odells Yard, 60 High Street, Stony Stratford.
