Fair coming to Queens Square

Queens Square will be transformed into a bustling market place when a Traditional European Food and Craft Fair comes to town.

The fair will run from Thursday October 24 to Saturday October 26.

Traders from countries such as France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland and Poland will wear traditional costumes as they sell their wares.

Products will include Brittany biscuits, olives, Italian nougat, cheeses, sausages, tartiflette (a cheese and potato dish from the Alps), charcuterie, fresh bread and croissants.

As well as food, the traders will be selling products such as handbags, leather items, Marseille soaps, lavender, children’s toys and pashminas.

Cllr Bob Lanzer, Cabinet member for planning and economic development, said: “Events like these make the town centre more vibrant and offer shoppers more choice. I’m looking forward to sampling some continental food.”

As well as the regular markets in the High Street on Saturdays and Queens Square on Wednesdays, Crawley Craft Fair will be held on December 7 and a Christmas Market is being planned.
