A weekend celebration of local food and community
Stop Press - the Topsham Winter Festival has been cancelled
Welcome to the Topsham Food Festival web site
The 4th Topsham Food Festival will take place on the weekend of June 15-16th, 2013.
Our weekend-long celebration will look to showcase Topsham as an outstanding source of food and drink at all levels as well as to provide a programme of events and opportunities to eat, drink and share fun activities centred on the pleasures of the table.
We are fortunate, indeed, for there is so much here on our doorstep that is truly brilliant. In an era dominated by supermarkets and multinationals, we still benefit from a great range of independent food and drink shops. Our town is famous for its numerous pubs and watering holes (the ‘Topsham Ten), as well as award-winning restaurants and cafés serving outstanding and varied food at all levels and to suit every taste and budget (look out for special Festival menus). Darts Farm, on the edge of Topsham, is a fantastic regional food hall with its own Food Club offering varied activities and events. Topsham even has its own vineyard and wine cellar at Pebblebed.
Sustainability, food miles, and concerns for the environment and the foods we eat are now mainstream issues. This Festival celebrates the local – and is part of an on-going Topsham ‘eat, drink, shop local’ campaign. The Topsham Food Festival is a celebration, an opportunity to eat, drink and be merry: to enjoy simply being here, in what many of us consider the loveliest place on earth.
We look forward to seeing you over the weekend!
Liz, Marc, Kim and all the Topsham Food Festival organisers
