THERE will be an exotic feel to Royal Wootton Bassett later this month when a Flavours of the World market is held in the high street.

Foods from baguettes to biscuits will be laid out for customers on stalls between the post office and the church on October 20.

“The purpose is to create an international atmosphere so people can enjoy exotic flavours and unusual aromas and delight in products they might not otherwise see or buy every day,” said a spokesman for organisers The Market People.

“The manifest for Wootton Bassett includes stalls selling Italian sweets and biscuits and delicate nougats, unusual cheeses not easily found in the UK which reflect the cultural and culinary traditions of rural France and a stall which sells cured meats and scrumptious rustic saucisson sourced from every corner of Europe.”

There will also be stalls selling ground coffee, mustards and dishes like Alpine favourite tartiflette.

As well as food, ornaments carved from Moroccan marble, jewellery created using amber from the Baltic and rugs from Turkey are going to be on offer along with 60 types of beauty bars and natural soaps made from olive and argan oil.

“We delight in bringing stalls which offer unusual goods, a wide choice of products and good value to our customers. We also have a record of bringing a lot of extra footfall to the places we visit which pleases local traders,” added the spokesman.

The market runs between 9am and 5pm and the street will remain open to traffic.
