International flavours hop into Carlisle. The award-winning International Market returns to Carlisle City Centre over the Easter long weekend.
Over 30 traders will bring a real flavour of Europe and beyond to the city with wonderful foods along with a great range of crafts and gifts from around the world.
A fantastic family-friendly atmosphere awaits as the pedestrianised area in the heart of the city transforms into a traditional market. It’s bound to delight shoppers and food lovers who have the opportunity to browse through stalls bursting with flavoursome delights and try something they wouldn’t normally find in Cumbria.
Foodies will be tempted by the vast selection of international flavours to sample like Spanish Paella and Greek Gyros along with Chinese and Indian street foods to name but a few. Stock up on your overseas essentials with a great selection of stalls selling fresh goods including olives, cheeses, bread and cakes.
Have a wander and browse through the great craft stalls selling handmade jewellery, Fair Trade wooden furniture, carvings and unique gift ideas. Of course, the famous Dutch Flowers on Tour will brighten up the market with a huge array of shrubs, bulbs, beautiful plants, trees and great garden ornaments.
Take some time out and unwind in the Street Bar with its selection of continental beers and wines. It’s the perfect interlude to your unique shopping experience or it’s a great way to end your global adventure.
Bring the family along to the market and join in the fun. What could be better than a leisurely long weekend browsing through an exotic market? It’s like a mini-holiday… without the hassle of leaving home.
Market opening hours – Thursday to Saturday 09:00 – 18:00, Sunday and Easter Monday 10:00 – 17:00
