Cheltenham street market returns
Cheltenham will be going continental again this autumn, when an international street market sets up its stalls alongside Long Gardens, next to the Promenade.
15 - 18 October, 9am - 5.30pm
Long Gardens, Promenade, Cheltenham
Due to the street market's popularity, the market will be returning for the fourth time, adding to Cheltenham's offering for shopping and tourist attractions.
More than 20 stalls, representing a host of European countries including France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain, will be selling a range of fruit, vegetables and cheeses, as well as hot food to take away.
Martin Quantock, manager of Cheltenham Business Partnership, said that it's a great opportunity to experience the taste, sights and smells of an authentic international market, along with the opportunity to buy something extra special: "I am delighted we have this international market coming to town again. I am sure it will prove as successful as the last one and will draw many visitors to the town."
The market has been co-ordinated by Geraud Markets, which also puts on Cheltenham's Christmas market.
