Continental market making its comeback at Belfast City Hall

By Claire Williamson

It may not be Christmas, but Belfast City Hall is already beginning to look a lot more continental.

The grounds of the building are expected to be jam-packed over the next few days as the Continental Market makes a welcome return. Almost 100 traders have opened up stalls, offering something for everyone's taste.

Instead of twinkling Christmas lights, sun lovers were dazzled by rays as they enjoyed a range of delicious food from around the world. And as the weather warms up, visitors can enjoy the exotic treats without needing to be wrapped up.

Sunglasses and T-shirts were the order of the day while workers grabbed an al fresco lunch.

Many sampled milkshakes and ice cream, handcrafted cheeses, homemade taramasalata, houmous and olives, bratwurst sausages, burgers and curry sauces. And for those with a sweet tooth, there are a selection of waffles, crêpes and macaroons.

The market is open 10am-10pm today and tomorrow. On Sunday it runs from 1-6pm, and on Monday from 10am-8pm.
