Glastonbury 2014's Weird and Wonderful Food Vendors

The sprawling greenfield festival has not only live performance, art installations and wacky goings-on; it's also home to a plethora of freaky foods, suspicious-looking snacks and just plain nice nibbles. Here's our top five alternative food highlights to find:

Yam The Cassava

Located between William's Green and West Holts, the delectable Yam The Cassava has become famous. This isn't just for serving prawn (and veggie!) gumbo along with some seriously salty creole fishcakes, but because vendor Colga Parker each year sets up the stall to earn money for her children's education. Next year she's still likely to be there, so buy some cornbread to support the Barbados-run benefit.

Veggies

This Nottingham vegan outreach vendor- located in Green Fields- has won many awards, but it's famous primarily for its heady hemp burger, which tastes... plantish. If THC-tastic treats are not for you, they do vegan fish and chip butties and humungous Cheezly double burgers, all with salad and onions for between £4-6. With free mayo and mustard, it's always a bargain; eat some tofu spanakopita next year, for the animals.

Goan Fish Curries

There's often a queue for this funky fish food, and while it may smell unappetising, the long lines do not lie. Straight outta Cornwall and located to the left of the West Holts stage, it's only a curried concern for those experiencing the Glasto 'flu.

Manic Organic

Another one located on the Green Fields strip, Manic Organic do some weirdly wonderful combinations of veggie food. Breakfast includes a mix of sosmix, lentils, chickpeas, cabbage and other veg along with a side of vegan bubble and squeak, patatas bravas and a good wedge of bread. Protein? Check. Veg? Check. Carbs? Oh yes.

Permaculture

The gladed surroundings of Green Field's Permaculture provide the perfect surroundings for a relaxing experience, as well as top food at low prices. Sit around the campfire and much on pakoras freshly made as you watch, accompanied with some spicy chutney, or take a chance on whatever is the main meal on the menu that day. With 6% elderflower champagne, tea, and melon all between 50p and £2, you could stay there all day.
