Flavours of the World Market will be coming to Taunton this September – against the backdrop of the world-famous historic Castle Hotel. Prepare for three days of traders and shoppers filling the square, to create a buzzing hub of international wonder.
The marketplace has a great historical significance as place of cultural learning and discovery. Before the supermarkets and the internet, the marketplace was where traders would introduce their world to the world. Those who had sailed the seas discovering new lands and cultures would gather the culinary and material treasures they harboured and bring them to market to showcase to their native countrymen.
Savoir Fayre continues this tradition, inviting select traders to bring their cultural and historic knowledge and the authenticity that they hold precious to the Flavours of the World Market in Uxbridge.
Flavours of the World is a market intended to stir the senses. Among the atmosphere, accents and aromas you will discover Italian sweets and biscuits from the home of the lightest nougats, and cheese that characterises the cultural and culinary identity its hometown, along with cured meats, fuet and saucisson from every corner of France and beyond its borders. There will be stalls offering a range of coffees and mustards the breadth of which boggles the mind, all brought by traders with the knowledge and passion to enlighten you of the subtleties between them.
Beyond the stalls that tempt the taste buds, the market showcases the beauty of crafts that exist beyond our shores. From bowls and ornaments carved from Moroccan marble, and Baltic amber set into handcrafted jewellery, to finely woven Italian clothing, rugs and throws and over 60 scents of soap, forged from olive oil and enriched with argon oils from Alep to Marseille.
