Visitors to Thoresby Market in north Nottinghamshire later this month are being treated to a tasty new fine food attraction.

The market on Sunday 28th April will include a special area dedicated to fine food and drink.

Run by East Midlands Fine Foods on behalf of the market organisers, the area will feature a selection of stalls selling a range of specialist produce such as Mexican food, jams and chutneys, curry pastes, smoothies, local and exotic meats, olive oils and potted beef.

It is the first time the fine food area is being staged, but it could become part of the market’s calendar of events.

Thoresby Market, held at Thoresby Park in Sherwood Forest, is the largest outdoor Sunday market within the East Midlands and attracts visitors from Nottinghamshire, Sheffield and south Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and Derbyshire.

It has been running for more than 25 years, and features over 100 stalls offering a range of products from household items, jewellery, craft items, to clothing and much more.

The fine food area will sit amongst the regular market, which runs from 8am to 3pm.

The pilot project is expected to attract up to 20 specialist food and drink retailers. Any food and drink producers interested in taking part are being urged to contact the organisers on 0115 9758810 as soon as possible to check stall availability.

East Midlands Fine Foods is operated by trade organisation The Food and Drink Forum, which is a not-for-profit organisation launched in 1998 to champion the growth and sustainability of the food and drink industry in the region.

Car parking at Thoresby Market is £1.50, with blue badge holders admitted free of charge.
