    • Event Description:

      Touring the UK annually for over a decade, Savoir Fayre’s French Market is a market crafted to stir the senses and beholding to the market place’s tradition of exploring and embracing culture.

      Each year, Savoir Fayre selectively invite traders who exhibit the range of wears; sourced and imported from towns continuing to craft foods from traditional ingredients and recipes passed down through the generations; as well as the cultural, historic and culinary knowledge and authenticity that they hold precious to the market as a cultural institution.

      You have tasted baguette, you’ve experimented with croissants and we all love a warm pain-au-chocolate. But this weekend how about a crunchy yet airy pain noix? Or a fresh and traditional tarte fraise, ou citron? Or mille feuille the way it was supposed to be done?

      From Le Specialiste du Fromage, established now for over half a century and with a range of over fifty cheeses, sourced from almost every region of France, to represent every one of those years; to the garlic prawns of Terre et Mer and the cured meats, fuet and saucisson of The French Comte, the best of France and its friends are coming to the heart of Britain’s town centres.
