GLENROTHES town centre is to be transformed into a bustling European market place.

The town will play host to its first-ever Continental Market early next month.

The market will be held at Marchmont Gait car park, next door to Rothes Halls, from 9a.m. – 5p.m. on the Thursday and Friday, November 1 and 2.

And it’s hoped townsfolk will take full advantage of their chance to sample foods - and a whole range of other European-produced goods - on home ground that they usually only come across on holiday.

Market organiser, Olivier Simonin, said: “We have professional continental market traders from France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Poland and many more countries, who will be wearing traditional costumes, selling high quality products including Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, delectable cheeses, sausages, tartiflette (a delicious cheese and potatoes dish from the Alps), charcuterie, fresh bread, croissants and for those of you with a sweet tooth, there will also be delicious freshly made crepes!

“Perfect for lunch or to take home for Bonfire night parties.

“As well as all of these delectable tasty goods, you will also be able to choose from a wide range of products including hand bags and leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children’s toys and pashminas!

“There really will be something for everyone!”

“Most of the products on sale will come from each stallholder’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.”
