Northampton Market




5th &



There are just two more chances to buy or sell Antiques before Christmas in Northampton Market Square.

Local antiques experts Antiques2Go are co-ordinating the event, and local auctioneer Jonathan Humbert - a real character within the Antiques world - will be on the Market Square with his double decker bus, hosting public valuations.
So have a look in the attic or the garage, and find that potential antique and get it valued! Seek out the vase that aunty left you that doesn't match the rest of your belongings and see if it is worth anything! You could be sitting on a great little nest egg for Christmas!
Dates for the 2010 series of Antiques days to be announced shortly.

A breath of Mediterranean sunshine will be sweeping across the Market Square on Friday, 6 and Saturday, 7 November as an Italian market is welcomed back, with Italian traders with their tasty treats. Perfect for your Christmas pantry or authentic Italian presents, brighten up your Autumn with some Mediterranean food and drink.
Stalls include pasticcerie (bakeries) selling many types of pane (bread) like focaccia and ciabatta as well as biscotti (biscuits), torte della frutta (fruit tarts) and dolci Italiani (Italian sweets). Olive miste (mixed olives), vino (wine), formaggio (cheese), olio d’oliva (olive oil) and aceto balsamico (balsamic vinegar) will also be amongst the Italian produce on sale.
It’s not all food and drink though, one special stall visiting Northampton will be selling stone jewellery and glassware all the way from Murano, the small island just of Venezia (Venice), which has been a glassmakers paradise since 1291.
