Final preparations are being made for the Hailsham Summer Food & Drink Market which takes place in the town centre on Saturday 30 July, from 9.30am until 4pm.

Vicarage Field will take on a distinctly continental flavour when Italia in Piazza – an authentic Italian market — will set up stalls selling traditional food such as cheeses, cured meats, pasta, olive oils, vinegars and regional specialities. All produce will be imported directly from producers in Italy.

The market, which is being organised by Hailsham Town Council in partnership with Hailsham Forward, will also include the usual street market stalls selling a range of locally sourced food, gifts and accessories.

Historic Hailsham Parish Church will be open to welcome visitors from 11am to 2pm and Hailsham FM will be broadcasting the event live.

Deputy Town Mayor and Chairman of the Town Council’s Communities Committee Councillor Amanda O’Rawe said: “Visitors can expect everything from the finest Italian food, fresh organic meats, artisan cheese, homemade cakes and baked goods as well as high quality preserves, oils, balsamic vinegars, sauces, fish, deli items and more!”

Communities Committee Vice-Chairman Councillor Chriss Triandafyllou commented: “Our summer market events attract traders and visitors from across the region and is an annual highlight for Hailsham town centre. Not only will there be an excellent selection of high-quality goods, but plenty of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.”
