Traders from around the world will return to Scunthorpe High Street from Wednesday 11th to Saturday 14th July, 10am to 6pm.

Around 20 traders will be selling products from their respective countries, including unique craft items and delicious hot and cold food. The town centre will be brought to life with the sights, sounds and smells from around the world.

Food on offer will range from cakes and pastries for those with a sweet tooth to flavoured cheeses and olives for those who prefer savoury treats. Not forgetting scrumptious Greek Gyros, Spanish Paella, Polish Bigo and Shao Kao Chinese Chicken.

RR Events Managing Director, Tony Walsh, said: “Our team of staff and traders have been involved in markets across Europe for over 10 years. We are particularly proud of our Continental Street Market brand as we know the atmosphere that it brings to the towns and cities we visit.

“We would like to thank North Lincolnshire Council for allowing us to return and hope the people of Scunthorpe will be as welcoming as they have been previously. We’re hoping that some local traders and producers may be interested in appearing at our events, so please get in touch with us.”

Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “It is fantastic that we have got the Continental Street Market returning to Scunthorpe town centre. It has always been very popular and brings a great atmosphere.

“Last time it brought thousands of extra shoppers to the town centre. You will be able to try a brilliant range of food from across the world and find some unique gifts.

“With two hours free parking during in the week and after 2pm in The Parishes, and all day Saturday and Sunday, shoppers will have plenty of time to shop in the town centre and browse the stalls.”

Linda Blow, Centre Manager, The Parishes Shopping Centre, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming the Continental Street Market back to Scunthorpe. We received some great feedback about the fantastic atmosphere and variety of products on offer last time. I’m sure it will be just as popular this time – if not more.”

James Smart, Operations Manager, The Foundry Shopping Centre, said: “We are excited to welcome the Continental Street Market back to Scunthorpe. It is always a very enjoyable event and is a great boost to local trade.”

The Continental Street Market is operated by RR Events, a north-west based Event Management Company specialising in special event and themed markets. The market will travel the length and breadth of the UK as part of its 2018 tour. It will return to Scunthorpe town centre in September and November. It will also be at Normanby Hall Country Park in May for the bank holiday festival.
