Glastonbury Festival might be best known for its music and performing arts, but our Markets team also put an incredible amount of effort into providing memorable, creative and vibrant markets across the site. With almost 800 traders offering an amazing array of food and goods, the Markets have become a major attraction in their own right!
GLOBAL CUISINE IN A SOMERSET FIELD
We now have over 400 food traders offering an array of exciting eats. The choices are endless with a huge variety of delicious, world cuisine available.
Even the stalls serving the food are tasty! You can get your refreshments from a 1975 Mercedes Benz fire engine (‘The Fryer Engine’, Kids & Acoustic, pictured above); a Guatemalan Chicken Bus (‘Guicha Coffee’, near Sonic); or a London double decker bus (‘The Tea Stop’ between Williams Green and circus) amongst many others!
FOOD FOR A FIVER
