Fargate, Town Hall Square and Peace Gardens are to welcome the return of the tasty Continental Market from Wednesday 14 – Sunday 18 October.  Shoppers will be spoilt for choice with a huge range of global foods, sourced from across the world in addition to a great variety of craft, all handpicked for the 5 day market!

Over 50 traders will be representing a selection of countries from across Europe including France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, Wales and many more. All products will be authentic to the trader’s origin country, allowing shoppers to taste the flavours of the world.

Some of the delicious foods available will include freshly baked macaroons, French tarts and pastries, Caramelised nuts, Normandy Crepes, a Thai noodle bar, BBQ Texas Smoker and The Wiltshire Chilli Farm who grow their own chillis to create homemade chilli products including jams and even chilli chocolate! If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try something different and visit Meats of the World, home of the ostrich, wild boar, kangaroo and crocodile burger!

Once you have tasted as much food as you can, why not wash it down with some refreshing bottled Quirky beers and alcoholic flavoured mead wines.

Sheffield will also be introduced to some fantastic crafts during the Continental Market where there will a humongous display of Dutch flowers, bulbs and plants available. There will also be a selection of metal sculptures, wine holders, beautiful leather diaries and a variety of unique Russian Dolls.
