Food at Salisbury City Garden


A local festival event caterer, whose business has been cut to zero by the Covid-19 lockdown, gets a second chance today.

Rob Sample, 24, from Queen’s Road, Salisbury, normally works the food and music festival circuit – selling a range of gourmet sausages and burgers.

In a normal year, he’ll spend the summer months at events like Glastonbury, Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Wimbourne Folk Festival and Brighton Foodie Festival with his Gourmet Farm sausage and burger stand.

But this year he’s had all of his 25 major events cancelled. Things were looking grim until he read about the Salisbury City Garden event on the Guildhall Square.

It brings together Gourmet Farm, a bar, coffee, Caribbean food – and a great summertime vibe from 1000-2200 every day.

The three principal businesses are all owned, run and staffed by local men and women – observing strict social distancing and complying with the latest Government advice to combat the virus.

Starting today in the Guildhall Square, Salisbury City Garden will run every day for six weeks.

Rob’s first customer for the year was also a local – Josephine Falzon, of Tollgate Road (pictured), who had two bacon baps for her and her husband Joe.
