A continental flavour comes to town market

Have your say

A CONTINENTAL flavour has come to the market in Bury St Edmunds with the opening of a crepe van.

Dominique Porche, who has previously worked in hotels, pubs and restaurants including the Swan, at Lavenham, decided to venture into market trading with wife Jane, after trade for his building business dried up.

“We have got a full menu from breakfast until dinner. It is a lovely market and it has been going good so far. The feedback has been very positive,” Mr Porche said.

“People regard crepes as a sweet but it is much more than that. It is an alternative to fried food, its healthier and lighter.

“We are offering continental fillings – some experimental dishes, some European dishes, mainly French as that is where I am from.

“We are totally different to anything else on offer. There is no competition whatsoever. We have seats out by our van. It is like a bistro in the middle of Bury.”

Mr Porche, who only started trading on April 23, added that he and his wife have had a wonderful welcome onto the market by fellow traders and customers. “It is fantastic. It is a lovely market and a lovely town,” he said.
