Royal Wootton Bassett Flavours of the World Market
October 20, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
In a first-ever for Wootton Bassett an International Food Market will set up on the high street for one day only on Friday 20th October 2017.
Flavours of the World comprises up to 20 carefully selected international stalls run by international traders who sell top quality artisan-produced foods and craft products from around the world.
You probably love a fresh baguette, enjoy breaking into a warm croissant with apricot conserve, and we all love a warm pain-au-chocolate. But how about trying a crunchy yet airy pain noix? Or a fresh and traditional tarte fraise, ou citron? Or mille feuille the way it is supposed to be done?
Touring different themed markets in the UK annually for over a decade, Savoir Fayre’s latest market, Flavours of the World, is crafted to stir the senses and appeal to locals and visitors alike.
The purpose is to create an international atmosphere so people can enjoy exotic flavours and unusual aromas and delight in products they might not otherwise see or buy everyday.
The manifest for Wootton Bassett includes stalls selling Italian sweets and biscuits and delicate nougats; unusual cheeses not easily found in the UK which reflect the cultural and culinary traditions of rural France; and a stall which sells cured meats and scrumptious rustic saucisson sourced from every corner of Europe. There are also specialist stalls offering an unrivalled choice of ground coffee and mustards.
Beyond the stalls that tempt the taste buds, the market has traders who showcase the beauty of international craft traditions. They include bowls and ornaments carved from Moroccan marble; Baltic amber set into handcrafted jewellery; finely woven Italian clothing; and rugs and throws from Morocco and Turkey. One stall sells an astonishing 60 varieties of beauty bars and natural soaps derived from olive and argan oil.
‘We delight in bringing stalls which offer unusual goods, a wide choice of products and good value to our customers. We also have a record of bringing a lot of extra footfall to the places we visit which pleases local traders.
