Tracey Harding, tourism team leader for East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "You will be able to treat yourself to home-made French pastries or delicious ripe brie and olives, or simply soak up the atmosphere and imagine you are in France.

"The French Market was a huge success last year and has something for everyone, so come along and see what is available.
