At City & Country Farmers’ Markets we are passionate about ALL good quality food and produce – obviously local is best but certain items just cannot be made or grown in this country. That is why we decided to start holding Fine Food Fairs, where items are available such as wine from Portugal, French cheeses and Italian olive oils.
We set the same high standards here as we do at our Farmers’ Markets – for example, all produce must come from small businesses (a lot of these will be family run) and the person selling the produce must have had a hand in making, growing or producing it. We also sample all items to make sure they are of a high enough quality. Our first Fine Food Fair was held in Cornmill Gardens, Lewisham, in June 2008, which proved very popular. We have put further fine food fairs on hold for the time being to concentrate on our farmers’ markets however we have some very exciting projects in the pipeline such as a real ale and artisan cheese festival planned for 2015!
If you are a fine food producer and would like to attend one of these events then please contact us here with details of your produce.
