A CHRISTMAS shopping bonanza with gift ideas from around the world has been lined up for people in Peterborough.
Two festive markets will adorn Peterborough’s new £12 million city centre in the crucial run-up to Christmas.
City centre managers say the markets will bring an added attraction to the array of retailers that have already set up home in Peterborough.
The markets are the latest move to bring shoppers into Peterborough, with others including the Christmas park and ride services to make it easier for shoppers to get into the centre plus cheaper weekend parking charges for shoppers who still want to use their cars.
After a month’s absence, the North African Berber market returned to the city yesterday with 10 stalls in and around Cathedral Square and will remain in place on December 22.
The traditional Moroccan market will be selling a range of produce including babouche slippers, teapots, ceramics, jewellery boxes, tagines and lamps.
Further traders will arrive in the city from December 7 with the addition of a continental-style market.
Stalls on Long Causeway will be serving up a range of food offerings including crepes, waffles and German barbecue.
They’ll be based in the city centre until Christmas Eve and stall holders will also be selling Italian delicacies, jewellery, scarves and sweets.
