Food Glorious Food comes to Rasen

WE know Lincolnshire has a wealth of top quality produce – the county was voted Britain’s Favourite Food Spot in the Love British Food poll last year.

There is certainly more to the county than the famous sausage, as the wealth of stalls at this weekend’s Food Glorious Food event in Market Rasen will show once more.

And with the help of Tastes of Lincolnshire, the event will be offering free cookery demonstrations to show the versatility of the produce.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Market Rasen’s celebration of local food and drink,” said Lydia Rusling of Tastes of Lincolnshire.

“The ‘Food Glorious Food’ market is a great opportunity to come along to select some of the best of the county’s food and drink, watch cookery demonstrations and sample some delicious tastes of Lincolnshire.”

Whether it is a touch of luxury you are after or something for Sunday lunch, there is sure to be something to tempt you.

Producers from across the county, as well as those closer to home, will be side by side in the town’s market place - more than 40 stalls in all.

Luxurious chocolates and fantastic fudge will be on offer from the likes of Special Edition Chocolate, The Fudge Factor and The Fudge & Sweet Emporium – the chance to treat yourself or pick up some earlier Christmas gifts.

If cheese is your thing, Osgodby’s Cotehill producers, Lymn Bank Farm Cheese Co and Goatwood Dairy will all be at the market, together with Saints & Sinners and Jenny Jams offering the perfect accompaniment with their range of chutneys, pickles and jams.

A wide range of meat, eggs, cakes and bread will add to the vast choice of goods at the event, which runs from 9am on Saturday, October 6.

And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be 20 or so stalls in the Festival Hall too, with a range of arts and crafts items - the ideal opportunity for some Christmas shopping.

The event is the latest in the series of markets being organised by the Market Rasen Business Improvement Group.

“As well as the market, there will be a host of exceptional offers from our high street too, that only run on market day,” said Jackie Smith, markets director.
