They were the most popular products of his booth. Ilia was very happy about his sales today. He said:” I have 30 to 35 customers everyday during the market. They are all very interested in my toys.

“I started my booth on the first day. It was difficult to run the business alone, but the sale was good. People bought them as gifts.”

The Continental Market had over 40 booths on the market this time. There were German sausages and beers, French ice-cream,  Norway furs and winter clothes, etc.. Most of the traders had their goods from around Europe.

“After that, I will go back to Russia.” Ilia said.

The market on Fargate and the Sheffield Town Hall Square is held by the Continental Market. It starts from  Thursday, November 4 and ends today, November 7. During the event, people can buy a range of products, gifts and food from around Europe.
