Get your slice of France without the jetlag at this French rendezvous with over 50 stalls to browse. Eat delicious food and shop artisan items. Warm up with mulled wine from the bar and listen to some live music. Bring the kids too as there are activities to keep them happy.
From 9am-3pm, Club Willoughby is the place to enjoy this day showcasing quality French products. From food to footwear, you'll find authentic, handmade and designer items all taking a spot at this market.
If you're arriving early, get your French brekkie sorted with pastries and bread from French bakers. Brioche, baguettes, choux, croissants and pains au chocolat are just some of what you can relish in.
For lunch, try the likes of a river of warm raclette cheese flowing over potatoes with bacon and ham, French sausages, French fries, patés, croque monsieur (a hot cheese & ham sandwich) and foie gras gourmet sandwiches.
