Speciality food and drink producers are being given new opportunities to sell direct to the public with the launch of fine food markets in Loughborough in October and December.
Loughborough English Food and Drink Festival events will be staged on Sunday October 23rd and again on December 16th.
The markets, which are being run by regional food group East Midlands Fine Foods on behalf of Charnwood Borough Council, are open to artisan food and drink producers across the UK and follow a similar event held in April for the first time.
“The Loughborough English Food and Drink Festival in April provided a great chance for speciality food and drink firms to sell direct to the public,” said Jo Taylor, events manager at East Midlands Fine Foods.
“We’re hoping to have a good range of producers at both the October and December events.”
The festivals will be held in the Market Place, Loughborough, in the centre of the town.
Organisers are looking for all sorts of producers from cheese makers to chutney producers and bread makers to beer suppliers.
“There are so many wonderful products made in the East Midlands and beyond, so we’re hoping for an excellent array of items for shoppers,” added Jo.
