Flavours of the World Market to sail into Bideford Quay

World Market Aug 2017

Bideford is likely to be abuzz with out-of-town shoppers and tourists on the first weekend in August when a colourful International World Food market sets up stall on the historic Bideford Quay

Carefully selected colourful stalls will stretch out along 150m of the quayside on 4th, 5th and 6th August. The organisers promise that the 28 stall international event will comprise top-quality international traders selling artisan-produced foods and craft products from around the world.

Savoir Fayre's landmark "Flavours of the World Market" normally operates in London and the South East but is making its first visit to Devon this year.

'We chose Bideford because of its evocative setting and waterfront location' says Conrad Murray, spokesman for the market's organiser. 'Flavours of the World is a market crafted to stir the senses and appeal to locals and tourists alike. We work hard to create an international atmosphere so people can enjoy exotic flavours and unusual aromas and delight in products they might not otherwise see or buy everyday.'

'All of our traders are especially chosen for the knowledge of and passion they have for the products they sell and their delight in offering tastings and explaining the particular characteristics and features of the goods they sell' says Mr Murray. 

'We delight in bringing stalls which offer both unusual goods, a wide choice of products and good value to our customers and we have a record of bringing a lot of extra footfall to the towns we visit which will help local traders in the town as well,' says Mr Murray. 'That means everyone is happy and we will normally hope to establish our visit as an annual event.
