Swansea Council has arranged for a specialist Italian market to be held on Oxford Street from Wednesday April 6 to Saturday April 9. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Salami, olives, dried fruits, nuts, olives, fudge and liquorice will all be available. The market will also feature a wide selection of Italian pasta, bread and pastries. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The council is bringing the attraction to the city centre in partnership with a company called Med Food. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Guidolin, who’s from the Treviso area of Italy, has helped just about ensure Premier League safety for the Swans since his arrival at the club earlier this season. Fellow Italian Alberto Paloschi, from Lombardy, scored the equaliser in the 2-2 draw against Stoke on the weekend, securing another vital point for the Swans. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Sarah Lawton, from Swansea Council’s city centre team, said: “The specialist markets on Oxford Street are always popular, whether it’s at Christmastime or other parts of the year. They help generate more vibrancy and atmosphere, and give city centre visitors the chance to buy things they wouldn’t ordinarily find so close to home. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“These markets also attract more people into the city centre, so it’s beneficial for other traders, too. There will be many more events in the city centre this spring and summer as we continue to do all we can to meet people’s expectations and generate the kind of visitor numbers our shops, indoor market traders, restaurants, pubs and other businesses need to flourish.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The market will be made up of a series of red, white and green stalls to mimic the colours of the Italian flag. It will be open from 9am to 5.30pm on all four days. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
