SLIDESHOW: Ooh la la! Continental market tickles the tastebuds in Ely

Written byJORDAN DAY

Paella, French cheeses and baklava galore meant food junkies were in their element in Ely.

The ever-popular Savoir Fayre continental market was in town from Saturday right the way through to Monday.

Visitors were able to try and buy a whole host of foods and delicacies from across Europe, including French cheeses, Spanish olives and Italian confectionery.

There were also stalls selling mouth-watering charcuterie, hams, condiments, paella, couscous, freshly baked breads, croissants, pain au chocolat, baklava and tempting cakes and gateaux.

But it wasn’t just food and drink that was on offer as there were also various craft, pottery, jewellery, garden furniture and fashion goods - from across the continent of course.

A spokesman for Savoir Fayre said: “Our continental market is always a huge success in Ely and this one was no exception.

“The weather was great over the weekend, Ely was busy and we did a roaring trade.

“People don’t just love buying the goods - they love the atmosphere as well.

“The continental market is all about sight, sound and flavour - all of which makes you forget you’re in the UK for a short moment.”
