Authentic flavours from across the world are set to create tempting aromas in Durham Market Place from Thursday to Sunday as the Durham International Street Market arrives in the city centre.

Visitors to the four day market will be able discover traditional dishes from countries including Morroco, China, Spain, France, Hungary and Poland.  There will also be a selection of stalls selling British food and confectionary, as well as craft stalls offering jewellery, wooden crafts, and garden furniture.

Colin Wilkes, Managing Director of Durham Markets, commented: Durhams Continental Market2
“The International Street Market brings something different into Durham, and an added reason to encourage people into the city centre.  With additional markets on three of the four days, all run by local independent businesses, Durham be buzzing and shoppers will have loads of choice.  Additionally, each stall will be manned by someone who is really passionate and knowledgeable about what they are selling.

In addition to the International Street Market, on Thursday, Durham’s monthly Farmers’ and Producers’ Market will bring local independent food and drink suppliers and craftspeople into the city centre.  On Friday, Durham Market Hall’s ‘Inside Out’ Market will have a number of traders from ‘inside’ the Market Hall ‘out’ in the Market Place, and on Saturday there will be the regular Outdoor Market.

Colin concluded:
“It truly is four days of ‘Super Markets’ in Durham.  As well as all the stalls in the Market Place, the Market Hall will be open Thursday to Saturday with more than 50 independent traders there.  Anyone shopping in Durham is guaranteed a vibrant and broad shopping experience.”

Durham International Street Market will be open from 10am to 5pm from Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th, and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 18th.  All other markets will be open from 9am.
