Tasty treats, things to eat and savoury sweets will be tempting the crowds when the Fine Foods Market makes its return to Banbury.

On Thursday. November 19 about a dozen guest traders will set up shop outside Marks and Spencer to sell a range of fresh foods and homemade products.

The event is from 9am-4pm outside Marks and Spencer has been organised by Cherwell District Council in partnership with market operators Sketts to offer town centre shoppers more variety.

Councillor George Reynolds, Cherwell’s deputy leader, said: “The Fine Foods Market took a break last month to accommodate the Michaelmas Fair so the appetite has been building for its return. We first launched the market in August as a new attraction to entice people into the town and so far it has proved incredibly popular.

“People can browse a selection of high quality products at low prices and treat themselves to a scrumptious snack, delicious dinner or lovely lunch. It’s a great opportunity for shoppers to treat themselves to something special before browsing the rest of the town centre shops and amenities.”

Previous markets have featured about a dozen traders selling lunch time snacks including pastries, pasties and stone-baked pizzas as well as tempting treats such as freshly made brownies and homemade ciders.

Customers can also shop ahead for dinner by choosing between a variety of fresh meat and fish as well as a range of herbs, oils and vinegars to garnish it with.

The weekly market will also take place as usual in Market Place.
