Kingston’s Food Festival in Kingston upon Thames happens around the beginning of August each year. It centres around the Ancient Market Place close to the river. Since the redevelopment of the market place in 2014, the area has become a focal point for foodies. Apart from the traditional fresh fruit, vegetable and flower stalls you’ll find lots of creative, pop-up style food stalls there. During the food festival the activity levels are ramped up with live food shows and challenges plus the local restaurants put on special offers and events.
