Our Traders

We seek out and handpick great food and drink producers working with sustainable and ethically-minded traders so that visitors can discover unique and guaranteed quality.

We care about minimising our environmental footprint, supporting small businesses and the local economy and we will be subsidising the best, small independent producers to take part.

In 2023, as well as a great line-up of street food and craft drinks, we will be increasing our focus on produce and ingredients from the South and South West to bring you a truly unique line-up of extraordinary food and drink.
