FABULOUS flavours, mouth-watering morsels and all the colour and ambience of the Mediterranean will be returning to Princess Gardens, Torquay during the Torbay Royal Regatta from Saturday 23 August until Wednesday 27 August inclusive.

This highly popular market, organised by Savoir Fayre Ltd with support from Torbay Council, provides all that is the best of French and continental produce, including French charcuterie, Dutch and French cheeses, Spanish paella, Italian confectionery and a great variety of fresh and dried garlic, seasonal vegetables and fruit. There will also be freshly grilled Toulouse and Merguez sausages, biscuits from Brittany, olives from the sunny south, and delicious flavoursome mustards and spices, hand made soaps from Marseilles.

Return visitors to this event as well as those who haven’t experienced it before will also be amazed and delighted by the newest stalls – the new delicatessen stall with its range of artisanal terrines and patés will delight the connoisseur’s palate, for example.

You have to be there to really appreciate the enticing aromas of freshly baked French bread, croissants, pain au chocolat, baklava, cakes and gateaux. And for a tasty treat while shopping, visitors can enjoy a freshly cooked crêpe or waffles hot out of the pan.
