International Street Market brings flavours of the continent to Workington from 21st July

19 July 2017

The International Street Market which has swept Scandinavia and now the UK with a feast of foodie fun is returning to Workington, aiming to build on the success of last year’s event.

Traders from around the world will be on hand to display the best products that their respective countries have to offer. From bespoke craft items, to hot food traders from around the world, the International Street Market will have it all.

Run by Groupe Geraud, the largest market operator in Europe, the International Street Market programme has been running successfully across the UK, Sweden and now also Denmark, and the market team is working in partnership with Allerdale Borough Council to bring the market to Workington.

From Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd July, a selection of traders will be present selling the best of the continent’s gastronomic delights and craft items. The food on offer will range from donuts and candy floss for those with a sweet tooth, to gourmet sausage sandwiches for those craving a meat feast as well as authentic Indian street food.

Stalls selling artisan wooden gifts and garden ornaments will also be available for visitors to browse along.

Groupe Geraud’s Philip Lamb said: “The International Street Market was a great success last year thanks to the atmosphere and buzz it creates and we are sure it will go down a treat this time.”

Councillor Mark Fryer, Executive Member for Economic Growth at Allerdale Borough Council, added: “We are delighted to work with Groupe Geraud to bring this popular market back to Workington. By supporting events like this we can contribute towards one of the Council’s priorities to make our towns thriving and welcoming for visitors and residents, while also enhancing the local economy.”
