An international street market that has swept Scandinavia with a feast of foodie fun has spent four days in Romford’ South Street.

About 20 traders from around the world displayed traditional cuisine and crafts for shoppers strolling through Romford town centre between Thursday and Sunday.

From spicy burritos, Mediterranean olives, Chinese noodle and British cheese, there was something for every taste.

Those with a sweet tooth were not forgotten and crepes, cakes and Mediterranean treats were also on offer.

Organisers, Groupe Geraud, partnered with Havering Council to bring the market to town.

Cabinet member for the environment Cllr Robert Benham said: “Havering Council is committed to making Romford Market and Town Centre a vibrant and attractive place for shoppers to visit and this International Food Festival is part of a programme of events we have planned for 2016.

“Street food is increasingly popular and we want to show that Romford is on the map for this cuisine.

“We also hope that shoppers coming for the International Food Festival will visit our stalls in Romford Market and shops in our four busy shopping malls – The Brewery, the Liberty, Mercury Mall and Romford Shopping Hall.”
