TASTY dishes were served up by traders from all over Europe at Nantwich's first Continental market.
Featuring more than 30 stalls, and offering almost 170 metres of market frontage, a range of produce including fruit, vegetables, cheeses, craft items, candles, jams, conserves and preserves were on show.
The public were tempted by take away hot food including Bavarian sausage, potatoes provençal, crêpes and baguettes.
Crewe and Nantwich town centre manager Elaine Dodd said: 'The market was a great success and we had many positive responses. It was very busy.
'Traders came from countries like Germany, France and Poland and Del Boy look-a-like Maurice Canham raised a few smiles.
'Nantwich is fast becoming the gourmet centre of the region and the various food events and markets are always popular.'
Nantwich Food and Drink Festival attracted more than 28,000 people to the historic town centre in September.
Andy Burnett, chief executive of organisers Groupe Geraud, said: 'The phenomenon of continental markets has taken hold in the UK over the past five years, with interest developed by those sunny holidays abroad.
'Our continental neighbours have a slightly different take on markets, viewing them as the place to go to guarantee quality, freshness and variety of produce.'
