Want to travel the world without leaving Cambridgeshire? Just head to Ely Markets.

Ely’s weekly markets regularly feature a diverse mix of street food, produce and gifts from across the globe. This bank holiday weekend, the regular traders will be joined by the Flavours of the World market, returning for its 12th year. Ely’s Market Place and High Street will have everything from authentic North African food and French cheese and patisserie to gorgeous olives and Baltic amber jewellery.

“People love seeing something new when they come to our markets,” explains Julia Davis of Ely Markets. “We already have a fabulous selection of food, crafts and gifts every week, but this bank holiday the Flavours of the World market will give you even more choice than ever. Whether it’s Mexican churros, Spanish paella, German currywurst or exotic sweets – we know you’ll find something you can’t resist.”

As well as enjoying delicious food, market visitors will also be able to buy gifts, homewares and more. There will be beautifully scented French soaps from Marseille, lavender from Provence, scented oils and exquisite jewellery – plus handmade wooden garden furniture.

The Flavours of the World market takes place in Ely High Street on Saturday 26 May and in the Market Place on Sunday 27 May and Bank Holiday Monday. It runs from 8.30am until 3.30pm. Ely’s weekly Craft, Food & Vintage Market and Farmers’ Market is open as usual on the Market Place on Saturday.
