Hartingtons Baslow Food Fair - media storm!

Hartingtons' first ever food fair in Baslow is blowing up quite a storm in the local media.

Not only has an article about it been spotted in the Sheffield Telegraph but it has got a full spread in the Peak Districts most widely read paper the Peak Advertiser.  In case you have not seen it the piece runs like this:

Baslow finally gets a food event to call their own!

After years of trying to get a food market off the ground and being in the shadow of
the likes of Bakewell Farmers Market and Chatsworth; Baslow has finally secured the
food event it has always wanted. The Baslow Christmas Food Fair with over 20 local
food heroes will rival any taking place within the Peak District.

Commenting on behalf of the Trustees of Baslow Village Hall; Helen White,
Marketing Officer said:

"We are delighted that Hartingtons have chosen Baslow to stage their first food fair
and have also committed to putting on another ten events next year. The people in
Baslow and from the surrounding villages can look forward to a having a local food
market to call their own. I'm sure it's going to be a great Christmas event for families
and foodies alike."

The event promises to be a great day with a hog roast, roasted chestnuts and mulled
wine being some of the warming treats. The Baslow Christmas Food Fair will run
from the 4th to the 5th of December with free admission on both days.

Exhibitors include: Peak Ales, Bradfield Brewery, artisan chocolatier Personally
Yours, new venture the Hassop Station Café, Peak District Dairy and Tindalls of
Tideswell will be bringing along their award winning Christmas Cakes. As well as
