The Hops and Barley Marketplace at the 2020 Epcot Food and Wine Festival has several items on my list to try this year. Since I haven’t had a chance to pick up anything here yet, we’ll take a look at the menu. Then, when I find a more convenient time, I will return and add the items that I’ve tried with a more detailed review.
As for now, you can expect to find the Hops and Barley Marketplace in the American Adventure Pavilion. It’s located on the far right-hand side next to the newer restrooms in the area. You’ll also find it next to the temporary Art of Disney store.
The booth has several registers set up to take orders and a pretty significant area roped off ahead for guests to wait.
You’ll find that the menu offers several returning items that have been pretty sought after in the past. The first is the New England Lobster Roll coming in at $8.25. For me, I’d rather have the lobster mac and cheese at Boursin, but this is another excellent option offering lobster at this year’s festival.
You’ll also notice the Southern Seafood Boil on the menu. This item is on my must-try list, but it’s been so hot lately that I haven’t been quite ready to try it yet. That and the fact that I have tried most of the other booths and calories are easy-come, but not so easy-go.
Lastly, the carrot cake with cream cheese icing returns. It, too, has been a popular item in festivals past. But with so many dessert options, it really becomes more of a preference thing.
Return to Epcot Festivals.
