The Spring Continental Market returns to Belfast City Hall this Bank Holiday Weekend with an array of delicious food from across the globe.

We took a wander round the market to bring you some of our favourites…

Kicking off from Friday morning, as part of the Northern Ireland Year of Food celebrations the Spring Continental Market is offering an outstanding selection of tasty local products to choose from and enjoy.

It also has tastes from around the world. Whether you fancy traditional meat skewers, dips and Greek origin cheeses, enjoy bratwurst and currywurst sausages fresh from the traditional German schwenkegrille or want to indulge in some Dutch pancakes and delicious pastries from the French patisserie – you definitely won’t be disappointed with this year’s selection.

Lavery’s Beer Tent was getting ready from first thing this morning for what’s sure to be a jam-packed tent this weekend. We’re already looking forward to going back to this one!

Gourmet Burgers

The famous Meats of the World stall aptly deliver burgers with a difference! This is your chance to try something a bit outside the norm, with burger options including Kangaroo; Venison; Ostrich or Wild Boar!

But don’t worry, if you’re not feeling too adventurous (and we don’t blame you if you’re kick-starting a night out!) you’ll definitely still enjoy the mouth-watering 6oz Steak Burger – the perfect way to line your stomach before the beer tent!
