Italian market reaches out across Welwyn Hatfield

FANTASTICO news! The Italian market that proves a regular attraction in WGC is set to reach out elsewhere in the borough.

The market will be setting up stalls in the grounds and church house of St Mary’s Church in Welwyn tomorrow (Friday), and in Hatfield town centre on Saturday, running alongside the equally-popular farmers’ market.

It will return ‘home’, to WGC town centre, on Sunday.

This is the first time the market will have gone to Hatfield and Welwyn village, and a borough council spokeswoman said if successful it could become a regular fixture.

Authentic Italian treats will be available to sample, from the extensive range of traditional stallholders, including pasta, olives, wines, cheeses, fresh breads, cured meats, pastries, pickles, and confectionery.

Nicola Kane, town centre manager for Hatfield, said: “The Italian market always proves extremely popular in WGC, so I’m pleased we’re hosting it in other places this time.

“Scheduling it alongside the Hatfield farmers’ market will make the range of excellent produce available to shoppers even greater.

“The range of treats and traditional delicacies on show are delicious and they aren’t commonly available locally, that’s why the Italian market is so popular.”
