The event celebrates and showcases many of the local producers and farmers who supply the Love Local Food mobile shop and contribute to the exciting programme of education events.
Love Local Food's Winter Food Fair will be transforming The Hub on the Green into a 'festive food hall' celebrating the very best in produce from the local area. Regulars to Love Local Food's mobile shop, which supplies communities in Exeter and the surrounding area, will be familiar to the variety of high quality products they sell; the Winter Food Fair will enable you to meet the people behind the local produce whilst creating an opportunity to sample seasonal food, drink and even find unique gifts for friends and family.
The Winter Fair will feature local food stalls from Highfield Preserves, Dartmoor Chilli Farm, Good Oil, Emma's Bread, Chiman's Spices, Owen's Coffee and more. There will be mulled apple juice, seasonal soup and mince pies plus Craft Table, Storytelling and Face Painting too.
Bex Phillips, Project Manager, Love Local Food said: “It is unusual for us to be static as the Mobile Shop is usually out and about all over Exeter and surrounding areas. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to get together with some of our producers and create a family atmosphere in a lovely historic venue such as The Hub on The Green.”
Love Local Food have been selling seasonal vegetables, sustainably produced meat, dairy goods, bakery products and treats directly from local farms and producers from the mobile shop since 2008. The shop brings great quality fresh food right into the heart of the community whilst reducing food miles, packaging and supporting the local economy. The team also run community events, seasonal education sessions and monthly producer activities throughout the year.
Joey Lee, Community Projects Director, from the Hub on the Green said: “I am thrilled that Love Local Food are holding their First Winter Food Fair at The Hub on the Green. Their ethos of local seasonal produce is right up our street and they keep finding ways for us to buy in fun and convenient ways. I love Love Local Food!”
Love Local Food's mobile food shop is out and about every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Exeter and the surrounding area.
