Penny’s back from her Handbag shopping trip and check out the bags she bought!

For the past week, the Continental Market, an annual event in Leicester, has been taking place around the Clock Tower, Gallowtree Gate and the pedestrianised High Street.

On offer at the market were produce and goods from around Europe, ranging from Sicilian olives and German sausages, to French crepes and Finnish knitwear.

Italian hams and cheese, traditional Greek food, and Dutch food including cheese, waffles and liquorice were also on offer. Other highlights include the Portugese delicatessen, the Polish Smerja bar, and a noodle bar.
