Cheltenham continental street market returns
Cheltenham goes continental again for the Spring, when an international street market sets up its stalls.
Where: Long Gardens, Promenade
When: 9am –5.30pm, Thursday 2 – Sunday 5 April 09
Cheltenham's first continental street market ran in April last year and due to its popularity, it returned in October, attracting shoppers near and far. The market will be making a welcome return once again, adding to Cheltenham's offering for shopping and tourist attractions.
More than twenty stalls, representing a host of European countries including France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain, will be selling a range of fruit, vegetables and cheeses, as well as hot food to take away.
Martin Quantock, manager of Cheltenham Business Partnership, said that it's a great opportunity to experience the taste, sights and smells of an authentic international market, along with the opportunity to buy something extra special: "I am delighted we have this international market coming to town again. I am sure it will prove as successful as the last one and will draw many visitors to the town."
The market has been co-ordinated by Geraud Markets, which also puts on Cheltenham's Christmas market.
