Food Fayres and Farmers Markets

Farmers Market AF


The local food fayres and monthly Farmers Markets offer you a wonderful opportunity to purchase quality produce, fresh from the field and direct from the supplier.


Take a walk around the markets and tempt your taste buds with the sight and wonderful aromas of the food.  From real ale, to home cured meat, farm cheeses to artisan breads you will find a wide selection of quality ingredients.


You may also find cookery demonstrations and taster sessions at some of the festival sites.


The annual shows and dates are as follows with other foody events in the What's On section.  Don't forget to visit the award winning local farm shops and Heage Windmill for their locally milled flour from our very own windmill.
