If you’re eating on the go, there are delicatessens and markets offering seasonal local food – pick up a delicious pie or pasty from the Exeter Farmers Market every Thursday, or experience the vibrant colours and flavours of the Guildhall Street Food Market every weekend and the regular Exeter Street Food Night Markets on the quayside.
There are also popular annual markets and foodie events in the city, such as the annual Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink.
