Uxbridge flavours of the world market!Before the supermarkets, before the internet; the marketplace was where traders would introduce their world to the world.
Traders, who had sailed the seas, discovering lands and cultures, would gather the culinary and material treasures they harboured and bring them to market to showcase to their native countrymen. The market was a place of cultural learning and discovery.
Savoir Fayre continues this tradition, selectively inviting traders who exhibit the range of wears, cultural and historic knowledge and authenticity that they hold precious to the market as a cultural institution.
‘Flavours of the World’ is a market crafted to stir the senses. Among the atmosphere, accents and aromas you will discover Italian sweets and biscuits from the home of the lightest nougats; cheese that characterises the cultural and culinary identity its hometown; along with cured meats, fuet and saucisson from every corner of France and beyond its borders; and stalls offering ranges of coffee and mustards, the breadth of which boggles the mind, but brought by traders with the knowledge and passion to enlighten you of the subtleties between them.
The diversity peaks with one of the most unlikely culinary cultural crossovers at the Rao Deli, where France meets Vietnam. Inspired by the iconic French baguette, the Vietnamese offer their own take, the Bánh mì – a crusty and light, fluffy baguette of traditional Vietnamese ingredients and baking practices, filled with succulent, slow cooked meats, marinated in spices only those from the Far East know how to perfect and severed with fresh chillies and dressings, delivering a mouth-watering balance of sweet and sour, heat and fresh, crusty and soft.
Beyond those stalls that tempt the taste buds, the market brings traders arriving to showcase the beauty of craft that exists beyond our shores. From bowls and ornaments, carved from Moroccan marble and Baltic amber, set into handcrafted jewellery; to finely woven Italian clothing, rugs and throws and over 60 scents of soap, forged from olive oil and enriched with argon oils from Alep to Marseille.
