Cheshire went to Borough Market from the 26-29 June to showcase the top-quality food and drink produced in the region. It was a great week!
Alongside the fantastic food and drink producers, Marketing Cheshire set up home and used the event to promote the region to a global audience. The fantastic weather saw the market bustling with holiday makers and locals, all keen to sample the produce and learn more about the region. By the Saturday midday, we had connected directly with 3,000 people who were now proudly supporting a “Chester, Cheshire and Beyond…” bag, containing a wealth of information and promotional material from across the region, including our brand new foodie guide. We had an overwhelmingly positive response from visitors, including from a number of Cheshire residents who couldn’t hide their pride and congratulated us on showcasing the region. Traders enjoyed the experience of trading alongside national and international stars, and had successful sales from Forest Gin to Fruits of the Forage and Carden Park to Reaseheath college, all of our traders put on a fantastic show. Hot on the heels of our excursion to the capital, our foodie map will now be made available for free at food markets across the county during Cheshire Foodie Month in July, a new celebration of the cream of the local crop. Events will include Foodies Festival at Tatton Park, 12-14 July, and Taste Cheshire Farmer’s Market in Chester will extend from one to three days, 19-21 July. There will also be farmers’ markets across the county, including Rode Hall (6 July), Tatton Park (12-14 July), Northwich (13 July), Wilmslow (20 July), Macclesfield (27 July) and Nantwich (27 July)…….
