Spring is in the air at popular Epworth food festival

Epworth Spring Food Fair is returning on Saturday April 4 from 9am to 3pm with a variety of delicious food on offer.

The Market Place in Epworth will be bustling with a range of stalls selling the best locally produced food. Discover the wonderful array of food available direct from the producer.

There will be lots of stalls selling a range produce; everything from cheeses and meats to brownies and cakes.

The Axholme Brewery will be at the market again this year along with Marron Cider and Liqueurs, Axholme Dextor Beef and Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese. Most of the regular producers will be at the market as well including Stonecrop Herbs and Fullers Bakery.

Let out your inner foodie at the food fair and explore the stalls and sample new tastes. It’s the perfect opportunity to chat with the friendly and knowledgeable producers.

The food fairs began in Epworth during 2012 and have quickly become well established on the local events calendar.

Epworth already has a great reputation for quality independent shops but now it is gaining one for quality local produce as well.

There is free parking at the Church Street, Chapel Street and Kings Head Croft Albion car parks, as well as overflow car parking at Epworth Leisure Centre and Albion Hill.

Councillor Liz Redfern, leader of North Lincolnshire Council said: “If you have never been to the Epworth Food Fair then you are definitely missing out on a great experience. One of the best things about the food fairs is that you can often try before you buy, which is a bonus. You can also speak direct to the producers and find out more about their products and any recommendations they may have.

“The food fair guarantees to provide good quality produce from local producers. As well you will be able to view Epworth’s lovely bespoke shops, eateries or even have time to pamper yourselves. There is a very warm welcome here in Epworth – so don’t forget and put the date in your diary.”
