Oswestry continental market a success
Delicacies from all over Europe were available on the streets of Oswestry as part of the town's continental market.
The event has become a main feature of the town's calendar in the last five years, with traders from various different countries gathering to offer foreign tastes the general public don't normally get to try.
Around 15 stalls were out from 9am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday.
Mayor councillor Vince Hunt said: "We always welcome the continental markets to Oswestry as they bring with them stalls you are not likely to see in the normal markets.
"The event is now an important part of our event portfolio."
The stalls in Cross Street and Bailey Street included a selection of foods from Germany, Poland, France, England, Turkey and Italy, along with craft stalls as well.
Some of the foods being sold by the continental traders included top of the range French Saucissons (salami), spicy Spanish chorizo, Hungarian chimney cakes, flavoured French mustards, Italian biscuits, Polish jewellery, Italian leather belts, luxury organic soap, real Greek Olives, unpasteurised French cheeses and Toulouse sausages.
Retail markets and events manager for the town council David Clough was delighted to have the market back again.
He said: "We had around 15 stalls on offer, and it is nice to give the public something different.
"It seems to have grown over the years and the general public has really taken to it.
"We've had a number of other markets taking place in the town and they have all done really well."
