The International Food Market Returns to Rye, and will set up on Rye's Strand Quay for two days only, as part of Rye Bay Scallop Week.
Flavours of the World comprises up to 20 carefully selected international stalls. The market will comprise international traders selling top quality artisan-produced foods and craft products from around the world.
You have tasted baguettes, you’ve experimented with croissants and we all love a warm pain-au-chocolate. But this weekend how about a crunchy yet airy pain noix? Or a fresh and traditional tarte fraise, ou citron? Or mille feuille the way it was supposed to be done?
The manifest for Rye 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 are also specialist stalls offering an unrivaled choice of ground coffee and mustards.
Beyond the stalls that tempt the taste buds, the market has traders who showcase the beauty of international craft traditions. They include bowls and ornaments carved from Moroccan marble; Baltic amber set into handcrafted jewellery; finely woven Italian clothing; and rugs and throws from Morocco and Turkey. One stall sells an astonishing 60 varieties of beauty bars and natural soaps derived from olive and argan oil.
