The award winning International Village Market will be returning to Halifax again this year fromThursday 4 May to Sunday 7 May 2017.  

Over 40 traders from around the globe will set up stalls along Southgate, Corn Market, Russell Street and Woolshops. 

Just some of the tasty flavours which will be drawing visitors in to the international event include Greek delicacies such as gyros, souvlaki, and Greek pies; a traditional German Schwenkgrill selling bratwurst and currywurst; mouth-watering French crepes and galettes; Catalan cuisine, including tapas and paella; Pofitjes, the famous Dutch mini pancakes with loads of toppings and even ostrich and kangaroo burgers. 

As well as international street food there will be some great fresh foods on sale including olives, baklava, a vast array of dried fruit and nuts, freshly baked macaroons from Belgium; great French Patisserie and famous French Artisan Bakery.  

But it’s not all about food as there will be some great craft and gift stalls, offering some fantastic jewellery made from recycled silver cutlery; South American jewellery and knitwear, Italian silk scarves, handmade amber, crystal and gemstone jewellery and of course the famous Dutch Market Garden where you can wander through a huge array of shrubs, bulbs, beautiful plants and trees with some great garden ornaments. 

If it all gets too much and you want to take a break, sit and relax in our very own Continental Street Bar where you can try some great continental beers and wine.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Barry Collins, said: 

“We’re delighted that the International Market is returning to Halifax for its second year, offering visitors the opportunity to shop around the world and both buy and try something different.

“There was a fantastic atmosphere at last year’s market, and I’m sure this year will be just as vibrant.  

“Come along and experience the unique products, and at the same time, pay a visit to the town’s many shops and our Victorian Borough Market, which is bursting at the seams with history, energy, friendliness and a massive variety of products.”  

Opening hours of the International Market are:

Thursday and Friday: 9am to 8pm
