Visitors to Aylsham’s two markets during the Aylsham Food Festival – 30 September to 2 October 2011 – will have the opportunity to taste a wide variety of locally produced foods. 

The Country Market, in Aylsham Town Hall on Friday 30 September, 8.50am to noon, will be offering ‘tasters’ from a variety of home made cakes, pies, cookies and savouries. Meanwhile, the Farmers’ Market on the following morning will have a whole range of locally produced samples, from asparagus chutney to burgers, apple juice to fish pâté, cheese to sausages.

Aylsham’s annual Food Festival is all about promoting local food and its producers. Giles Margarson, chairman of Slow Food Aylsham which organises the Festival says, “We are delighted that so many local producers will be offering samples of their food this year. Coupled with the Festival Dinner and the Big Slow Breakfast during the Festival weekend – both of which use local produce, Aylsham’s Food Festival really is a showcase for food from our area.”

Aylsham’s Food Festival is now in its sixth year and is organised by Slow Food Aylsham, a branch of the international Slow Food movement. This year’s Festival is running in association with Norfolk Food Festival and enjoys support from Broadland District Council, Aylsham High School, J B Postle and the National Trust.
