International Market comes to Huddersfield
New Street, King Street, Cloth Hall Street and Market Place Square will become a bustling market place when up to 50 specialist traders from around the world set up stalls for 4 days from Thursday 12 October to Sunday 15 October 2017.
What’s on offer?
They will be offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy the fabulous flavours of the continent, and to shop the unique arts and crafts of the world.
As the cold autumn weather creeps you can warm yourself with the fabulous fresh hot street foods on offer.
You will be spoilt for choice with delicacies from France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece, Morocco, as well as Indian, Lithuanian and Thai foods!
Don’t forget to leave a little room for all the sweet treats on offer, like freshly-made delicious French crepes.
Jimmy Beans will also be in town with what is probably the biggest selection of Fair Trade flavoured coffee beans and his large selection of different and exotic loose-leaf teas. If you really love tea or coffee it is the perfect opportunity to buy some very unusual flavours.
It’s not all food either…
But it’s not all about food, with Christmas fast approaching there will be the chance to buy special gifts from the arts, crafts and jewellery stalls. Not only will there be beautiful Italian silk scarves and handmade metal sculptures but there will also be Baltic Amber jewellery which is made in Poland.
The market will be manned by friendly traders who are more than happy to talk about their products and share their stories.
Cllr Peter McBride joint cabinet Member for economy said:
“Huddersfield has a history of hosting great food events, with the food and drink festival being a highlight of the summer calendar. I am sure that this event will be equally popular – and I hope it will be the first of many similar events in our town centres.”
Cllr Naheed Mather, joint cabinet Member responsible for economy said:
“I am delighted that Marketplace have selected Huddersfield to host one of their international markets, this four day event will bring a real buzz to the town and I am sure it will attract lots of people looking for a day out with a difference.”
When can I visit?
The market is open on Thursday to Saturday from 9am until 6pm and Sunday 10am until 5pm
