Showcasing authentic flavours from around the world and bringing the opportunity to shop the unique into the heart of the City Centre. An experience not to be missed!
Come join us this August Bank Holiday weekend as Market Place brings the ever-popular Global Village Market back to Carlisle City Centre. Over 30 traders from around the world will set up stall along English Street from Thursday 24th to Monday 28th August. The market will be open from 9am until 5.30pm Thursday to Saturday and from 10am until 5pm Sunday and Monday.
English Street will be transformed into a shoppers haven and food lovers’ paradise as traders from all over the globe, handpicked for the quality and popularity of their products, visit the city for the long Bank Holiday weekend.
Allow yourself to be transported to the sunny shores of the Mediterranean whilst sampling the authentic flavours on offer from the Continent. Take your pick from your favourite European cuisine: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Greek and Turkish street foods will all be there for you to enjoy. Or, how about a taste of the exotic; with deliciously fragrant Thai noodles, spicy Indian curries or go wild and try some of the rare and exotic meats and burgers including Ostrich, Kangaroo, Wild Boar and Crocodile! And of course, not forgetting the good ol’ taste of home with great British cheeses and an impressive hog roast too.
Don’t forget to leave a little room for a sweet treat, as we guarantee you will not be able to resist the array of delicious cakes, biscuits, sweets and crepes on offer to tempt you - all, in our opinion, best enjoyed with a flavoursome cup of coffee.
If it all gets too much and you want to take a break, visit our very own Continental Street Bar where you can try some great continental beers and wine whilst being entertained by a local band guaranteed to get your toes tapping or if you’re feeling brave get up and have a dance to burn off all those calories.
Wait though, it’s not all about the food! Market Place have also handpicked a selection of traders selling unique products from various countries around the world for you to find that special gift or just a little treat for yourself. Green fingered shoppers will not be disappointed either as the market will include popular Dutch plant seller with his wonderful array of shrubs, plants, trees and bulbs.
