Continental market and donkey make return visit to North Walsham

Continental market traders will be filling North Walsham Market Place on Sunday selling foods and other goods from countries including France, Italy, Holland, Germany and Spain.

The market, on April 1 from 9am-5pm, will include stalls selling Dutch toffee waffles, fresh bread and patisseries, Brittany biscuits, paella and chorizo, tartiflette from the French Alps, Corsican dry meat and pate, olives and Italian deli, German barbecue. Peruvian clothes and handbags from Paris.

The market's return follows the success of its debut visit last year when it also visited North Walsham on Palm Sunday.

This year the stallholders will once again be joined for a spell in Market Place by Laura the donkey and palm-bearing worshippers who are due to process from the Market Cross at 9.50am, up to St Nicholas' Parish Church for a service.
