I've been to too many "continental markets" in the UK, and they're almost totally identically in its format, and pricing structure. Please please, don't provide the public, because of their ignorance of continental provisions, with blatant imitations from nearby, and don't charge the citizens, like recently at the Manchester Christmas market, an absolute staggering amount for a Bratwurst and Mullet wine.( £15.00). Keep the pricing affordable, and endeavour a guaranteed continental bonanza of food and wines. Just do what it says on the tin!!!!
