Food Markets

The food retailing section features stands selling a range of food and drink products that visitors can take home with them. This includes locally produced cheese, meats, baked goods, chocolates, preserves, and much more. Visitors can browse the stalls, taste samples, and purchase items to enjoy later.
The food retail section is supplemented at the weekend with additional stands in the large Market Hall located outside outside of Boots Opticians and at St Crux (Pavement / Shambles)

The street food section offers visitors the chance to sample a variety of delicious dishes from around the world. Here, visitors can indulge in a range of cuisines, including Thai, Indian, Italian, and Mexican, among others. The street food stands are designed to be eaten on-site, allowing visitors to enjoy a range of flavours and dishes as they explore the festival.

Overall, there are around 100 stands at the festival, with a mix of food retailing and street food. The markets are open from 10 am until 5 pm each day, giving visitors plenty of time to explore and sample the various products on offer. Additionally, the street food stands located around the music venues remain open during the evening performances, allowing visitors to continue enjoying the festival’s food offerings well into the night.
