On May 21/22 PopUpMarketSicily returns to Bishops Square in Spitalfields with a Sicilian-themed two-day event: SicilyFEST.
Designed to give Londoners access to real and authentic “Made in Sicily”, SicilyFEST will transform Bishops Square into a typical and traditional Sicilian street market. A showcase of the very best the sun-drenched island in the heart of the Mediterranean has to offer.
The array of stalls will include handmade jewellery, unique accessories, crafts and home interiors; in addition, visitors will – literally – have a taste of Sicily with a wide selection of cannoli, arancini, pasta, marmalades, jams, sweet and savoury preserves, desserts, craft beers and wines. Every mouthful will give visitors a sense of Sicily’s intoxicating vitality.
There will also be photographic exhibitions and art therapy activities for kids in a dedicated area in Bishops Square.
Highlights of the weekend will be two show-cooking sessions organised in collaboration with APCI-UK, the UK delegation of APCI (Association of Professional Italian Chefs), and its President, Chef Carmelo Carnevale. Chef Carnevale will unveil to the visitors his tips and tricks for a perfect – and 100% Sicilian – orange salad, a simple yet disarmingly tasty traditional recipe.
SicilyFEST, a Sicilian Festival, a tasty and visual feast, for the stomach as well as the eyes.
