Clumber Food Fair this weekend

Visitors to the National Trust’s Clumber Park will have the chance to tantalize their taste buds with the very best of locally produced food from the region, as the Clumber Food Fair returns this weekend.

Over the two days The Stableyard near the main visitor facilities will be transformed into a market place with an array of tempting produce to try and buy fresh from a selection of local producers.

The Fair showcases producers from Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, and Leicestershire, all within a 45 mile radius of Clumber Park. There will be a variety of stalls offering all sorts of delights, from local and regional cheeses, meats including bison and venison, to treats for those with a sweet tooth including pastries, tarts chocolates and confectionary.

On Sunday, Clumber chefs will be demonstrating some culinary delights using the local produce available.

Events coordinator Pippa Purser said: “All of the stallholders have been selected based on their proximity to Clumber Park and the quality of the products they supply. We have got a really good mix of products on show and there will be plenty of samples to try so the event will be a great addition to a day out at Clumber Park.”

The National Trust is a committed champion of local food producers and several of the stallholders already supply their products to Clumber Park and other Trust properties in the area.

The Clumber Park Food Fair takes place on Saturday and Sunday, 10am and 4pm in The Stableyard, Clumber Park. Normal admission charges to the Park apply.
