Southam will once again be saying a warm ‘bonjour’ and ‘bienvenue’ as the town hosts the ever-popular French Street Market.

Working in partnership with France At Home, volunteers from Southam First will be transforming the High Street into a market featuring a fantastic range of tempting produce.

On sale will be freshly baked bread, croissants, cakes, biscuits, patisserie, tarts, cakes, pastries and crêpes will be on offer with other tasty treats.

Savoury street food, tartiflette, delicious cheeses, olives from Provence, cooked meats, paté and saucisson from Normandy, will also be on sale.

As well as food basket-ware, leather goods, knitwear and accessories, vintage music and rugs and many more French-themed products will also be on offer.

Community groups, Southam Twinning Association and the Southam Neighbourhood Plan team, will be taking part, and there will be a Chocolate Tombola – just in time for Easter.

The organisers are hoping to attract both residents and visitors from around the district into the town for this special themed market day boosted free parking.

Southam First Chair, Katherine Geddes, said: “We’re hoping lots of families will come into town on Sunday April 9 between 10am and 4pm to enjoy the market atmosphere, sample the produce, and see what else the town has to offer.”

The main stretch of High Street will be closed to traffic.
