Foodie Events and Activities
Bath has a busy calendar of food events, from farmers’ markets and chef demonstrations to wine tastings and food festivals.
In June 2018 Bath will be hosting Pub in the Park for the very first time. Launched by Tom Kerridge in 2017 this three-day festival will combine the very best of Britain’s food, from world class chefs and Michelin-starred pubs, with great live music and chef demonstrations to create the perfect foodie experience.
Did you know that Bath invented the concept of farmers' markets, with the very first one set up here in 1987? The Bath Farmers’ Market is just as popular today as it was when it first began, running every Saturday morning at Green Park Station. Discover, browse and sample a cornucopia of foodie delights from fruit and vegetables to freshly baked pies, bread, organic meats and plenty of sweet treats, all sourced within a 40-mile radius of the city. Other local farmers markets can be found just outside of Bath in Midsomer Norton and Keynsham.
Keep an eye out for chef demonstrations and tastings at Topping & Company Booksellers as they often host chefs who are launching new recipe books.
