Le Marche de France comes to Ross

The last of the European markets to visit our lovely, lively market town this year, Le Marche de France from Normandy, will be setting up its stalls on Saturday 1st October in Broad Street alongside the usual Saturday market. With a wide selection of authentic French food, including meats, breads and cheeses and a selection of craft items including leather goods it offers shoppers the opportunity to sample and buy products which give a real flavour of French national cuisine and speciality items. There is something to suit all tastes with a chance to buy more unusual gifts or even better to treat yourself with.

With over 800 car parking spaces in Ross (279 of them free all day at Wilton Road car park and only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre), there is plenty of room for everyone to come into town and enjoy all that Ross has to offer. The internet savvy amongst you can locate the most convenient car park by taking a look at www.parkodedia.com which lists car parks throughout the country and gives lots of information including parking charges.

As well as the novelty of the French market there are many independent, specialist shops in Ross that offer their high quality goods all year round. From fresh organic and locally grown fruit and vegetables to locally reared meat, locally produced chocolate, wines and cakes and locally made craft items you do not need to travel to other towns for a fabulous selection of all that is good about living in Herefordshire and also have the opportunity to sample Continental fayre.

Broad street will be closed to enable shoppers to wander free of traffic from market stall to shop and from shop to market stall in a relaxed and historic setting and enjoy a cup of coffee or something stronger in one of Ross’s excellent cafes or Inns (many recently refurbished). We look forward to seeing you on 1st October to offer you a bit of what is so special about Ross-on-Wye.

In addition to the regular Thursday and Saturday ones other markets held in Ross include The Farmer’s and Antiques Markets set up on the first Friday in each month (April to December inclusive) under the circa 1650 built Market House in the town centre. Trading times 9.00 to 2.00pm.
