A Continental market is coming to Eastbourne seafront for the Easter weekend.

The stalls will run along the upper prom near Eastbourne Pier from March 29 to 31.

Market 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.

This year, we have some new exciting stalls: German salami, Finnish crafts, Peruvian handicrafts, Italian macaroons and Dutch flowers. But also the popular ones such as French cheeses, bread and croissants, olives, dry fruits and nuts from Greece, paella and German sausages.”

The organisers are promising a bigger market than in previous years with handbags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children’s toys and pashminas on offer.

Olivier added, “There really will be something for everyone.

“Most of the products on sale will come from each stall holder’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.

“All of the traders will also wear their traditional local costumes from 100 years ago, as well as decorating their stall to represent the region of the country they come from.

“The market will therefore provide you with a true flavour of the continent.”
