Cheese stall at the continental market in 2010

Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 October 2015

Cheltenham’s International Street Market returns to the town for the 15th time on Thursday 1 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.

Kevan Blackadder, manager of Cheltenham Business Partnership, said: “The market is always extremely popular in the town and we’re looking forward to welcoming a wide range of stalls once again.

“Shoppers will find some great goods on sale and it is also an opportunity to visit our town centre stores at the same time.”

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