THE Global Village Market will today transform Victoria Square into a melting pot of cultures and cuisines today — offering people the perfect excuse to start Christmas shopping.
For the second time this year, the international food, gifts and crafts market features a number of traders from around the world selling their goods until Sunday.
Brave meat eaters can try out a range of exotic meats, from ostrich, impala, crocodile and wild boar from Meats of the World. Or you can sample a delicious bratwurst sausage from Traditional German Schwenkgrill.
If cheese is to your taste, The Cheese Board will be offering a number of cheeses from around the world along with crackers, jams and chutneys.
Bread lovers can visit French traders Le Mitron who are known for their sing-a-long baking sessions involving fresh breads, Viennoiserie and French tarts.
The markets will be open from 10am to 4pm and stalls will offer other tasty treats including pastries, tarts, olives, salami, chocolate, cakes, fashion and crafts stalls.
Cabinet member for community services, Cllr John Byrne, said: “It’s fantastic that the organisers have decided to bring this market back to Bolton for the second time this year.
“Market Place Europe is one of the UK’s leading special event market companies and this event will be a welcome addition to the town centre.
“People can sample different foods from all around the world and it’s also a great place to make a start on your Christmas shopping.
“There’s something for all the family and I’d urge everyone to come down.”
