The Continental Market promises to be bigger and better with lots of exciting new traders but shoppers will be delighted to hear that some of their old favourites such the traditional German Schwenkgrill which will be offering a number of Bratwurst and Currywurst sausages. Crepes Temptation who is also a popular choice with a range of authentic French crepes and Meats of the World will have a selection of exotic meats including ostrich, crocodile and wild boar!
