International markets come to Sheringham and North Walsham

The sights, sounds, and sweet and savoury smells of an international market are set to fill two north Norfolk towns at the end of next week.

Traditional stallholders from the continent and further afield will be setting out their wares in Sheringham High Street on Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16, from 9am to 5.30pm, and will be doing the same in North Walsham's Market Place on Sunday April 17, from 9am to 5pm.

The markets will include olives, breads and cheeses, Breton biscuits, dried fruits and nuts, German sausages and Italian dried meats.

There will also be craft stalls offering clothes from Peru, soaps, jewellery and scarfs from France, and Italian pashminas and watches.

Freshly-cooked crepes will be available, as well as Muscadet wines from a family vineyard in Frontignan, and Swedish cider.

Most of the products on sale will come from 'the terroir' - the land - of the stallholder, where they are produced by small organisations such as family businesses, farms or small factories, using traditional methods.

Traders will be wearing traditional local costumes and decorating their stalls to represent their area.
