Ely Markets Goes Continental This Bank Holiday Weekend

Ely Markets will play host to a range of continental delicacies and delights over the long bank holiday weekend.

From Saturday 27th August until Monday 29th August, visitors to Ely Market can indulge in what the visiting continental market has to offer. An array of food stalls will hold everything from freshly made paella, crepes and tartiflette to artisanal cheese, breads, olive oils and preserves. There will also be a variety of continental crafts available, including handmade Provençal soaps, amber jewellery, woodcarvings, objets d'art and fashion accessories.

On Saturday 27th August the continental market will be situated on Ely High Street alongside the weekly Craft and Collectables market and Farmers' Market, on Market Place and Dolphin Lane.  It will then relocate to Ely Market Place alongside the weekly Sunday and bank holiday markets for the 28th and 29th August. The market will be open from 10am until 4pm for all three days.

Emma Grima, Director of Corporate & Commercial Services, said: "The continental market brings a taste of summer to the city and complements our regular weekend Ely Markets perfectly. There's something for all the family, whether you want to sample the delicious continental food or browse for a special gift.  The atmosphere is sure to be buzzing throughout the weekend and I hope residents and visitors alike take advantage of what Ely Markets have to offer."

You'll also find all your favourite Ely Markets stalls on the regular weekly Saturday Craft & Collectables Market, Farmers' Market and Sunday Market alongside the Continental visitors this weekend.
