Continental market visits

A continental market returned to a town centre for the first time in five years.

Desborough Town Centre Partnership held the market on Friday, June 8, and Saturday, June 9, to encourage more shoppers into the town.

There were stalls selling a variety of goods, including French crepes, olives, stuffed vine leaves, nuts, cupcakes, sweets, bread and jewellery.

One of the reasons the continental market had been absent from the town for a while was that the town centre partnership had been campaigning for plans to open a supermarket in the town centre before plans to open one on its outskirts.

Town centre partnership secretary Pamela Goodman said: “I started organising this market about a year ago because it takes that long to get something like this up and running. I would love to see it become an annual event.”
