Thursday 3 October – Sunday 6 October

Cheltenham’s International Street Market returns to the town for the twelfth time on Thursday 3 October for four days. The market will have a continental feel, which will offer more variety, new flavours and different crafting techniques.

With dozens of stalls on the pedestrianised area of the Promenade (by Waterstones and Cavendish House), it will feel like a trip around the world with Eastern sweets including Turkish delight to French baked goods. There will also be stalls selling a range of crêpes, paella, curry, noodles, Polish cuisine, cheeses and olives.
The market will open from 10am until 5.30pm on each of the four days.

Martin Quantock, manager of Cheltenham Business Partnership, said: "Traders from all over Europe are visiting the town to tempt everyone with sights and smells of traditional food dishes from their homelands, along with crafts and gifts.

“With such a range of wonderful goods to choose from, why not take this opportunity to make an early start on your Christmas shopping or, perhaps, remind yourself of the summer holiday you took this year!”
The market has been co-ordinated by Geraud Markets, which also puts on Cheltenham’s Christmas market.
