A CONTINENTAL market will try to lure Christmas shoppers in Douglas next month.
It will be in the town from Duke Street to Marina Road – along Strand Street – from November 22 to 29.
The European Food and Craft Fair traders will try to build on the success of their visit at Loch Promenade this summer.
Fair organiser Olivier Simonin said: ‘We have new professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more countries who will be selling high quality products including German mulled wine, spiced bread, pretzels, wooden toys, fruit bread, nuts, chocolate and reindeer toys.
‘All of these delights will really get you in the mood for the Christmas season.
‘This year, we will also have, as in July, our German salami, Finnish crafts, Peruvian handicrafts, Italian macaroons, French crepes and churros.’
As well as food, there will be a wide range of products including handbags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children’s toys and pashminas.
Most of the products on sale will come from each stallholder’s region, where they are produced by small organisations such as family businesses, farms or small factories using traditional methods, maintaining a high standard of quality!
Mr Simonin said: ‘All of our stalls will have a festive look, ensuring you really do feel the Christmas spirit! The fair will provide you with a true flavour of the continent.’
