Midlands Foodie Events – August 2011

August appears to be a quiet month in terms of specialty food fairs in and around the Midlands –  must be the holiday season!!

So it’s the perfect time to get out and about and support your local food stores and farmers market and here are our favourites:

Brown and Green have tastings on every weekend in both of their Trentham and Derby stores and you can find out the details on their newly designed website. Highlights for August include:

  • Kids food is Fun Day on 16th August at Trentham with local producers and lots of fun for under 12’s. Activities include gingerbread decorating and a teddy bears picnic. Booking is required due to popularity.
