Taste of Europe comes to town

AFTER a five year wait, Desborough will have a chance to sample continental cuisine when a speciality market comes to town.

Desborough Town Centre Partnership has announced it has secured a two-day continental market in June.

It will feature several European traders selling national foods, crafts, clothes and carved items from each of their respective countries.

The market, which will be based in Desborough’s High Street, will also look to boost the town centre, with traders vowing to open up their shops all day during the market.

Pamela Goodman, of Desborough Town Centre Partnership, said: “We’re delighted to have the market and hopefully it will help give a buzz to the town centre.

“It is something we hope that will bring people into the town centre and to show them that there is more to Desborough than what people think.

“We want to show them that the town is on the up.

“We last had a continental market five years ago, and despite a drizzly day it was a success so we are hoping to recapture that again.

“The Town Centre Partnership has been working hard over the past months to get the market into Desborough.”

The speciality market will visit Desborough on Friday, June 8, and Saturday, June 9, during the half-term holiday.

The Town Centre Partnership also hopes to encourage the town’s traditional market to take part. Details on stalls and times will be announced soon.
