Baslow Food fair - wow - what a great weekend!

We have just got back from our first ever food fair in Baslow nr Chatsworth.

Wow - what a great weekend!

The flood of people didn't stop..........Throngs of walkers who had been exploring the surround countryside, day trippers taking a stroll in Chatsworth Park and foodies making the trip having read about the event in the Sheffield Telegraph and the Derbyshire Times.

There was so much interest from the public in our artisan food producers............

Pete from Real Honey Apairies sold out on the first day of his Heather Honey (36 jars in one day).  He ended up having to go back and bottle more early Sunday morning just to keep up with demand!

Not surprising when we saw the hoardes of people with their brown bags leaving the venue.  There are certainly going to be a lot of people eating very well this week!

All we can say is thank you to the people that made the effort to visit our first food fair and all those great stallholders that made it such a special event.

We look forward to meeting you at our next food fair on the 7 and 8th of May.

Chris & Julie
