Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 October on the Promenade, Cheltenham

Cheltenham’s International Street Market returns to the town for the 14th time on Thursday 2 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 and 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: "With the autumn upon us what better way to warm up your taste buds than by visiting Cheltenham's Continental Street Market and sampling the tastes and smells of foods from all over Europe along with traditional crafts and gifts. Come along and visit this traditional continental market over the weekend, soak up the atmosphere - and treat yourself at the same time!”

The market has been co-ordinated by Geraud Markets, which also puts on Cheltenham’s Christmas market.
