Gloucester Orchard Street Food and Craft Market

We’re back at the ever popular Gloucester Orchard Street Food and Craft market for 2024, and we hope you’ll come down and see us! Located within the historic Gloucester Docks and immediately adjacent to Gloucester Quays, the market is easy to find and makes a great addition to a day out in Gloucester.

Showcasing a great mix of independent businesses, you’ll find producers of local food and drink including gin, real ale, cheese, cakes, fudge, bread, chutneys and chocolate treats (of course!) alongside local artists, handmade jewellery and plants – with 50 – 70 stalls at each market.

You’re also covered for lunch too, as each market hosts some of the best local street food traders serving up a delicious range of hot food as well as your favourite restaurants being minutes away in the Gloucester Quays shopping centre.

Our treats are always popular in Gloucester so we’ll bring a mix of our chocolate brownies, cookie bars, rocky road, blondies, brookies and cookie sandwiches and we have been working on some new treats for 2024 so you’ll always find something you’ll love. We always try and post a full menu prior to each market we attend on our Facebook and Instagram pages, so make sure you give us a follow to stay updated!
