Slow Food and Festivaldelgusto markets

The members of Slow Food Norwich are passionate about promoting locally produced food in Norfolk and with working with artisan food producers and food related businesses to promote good local food all over East Anglia, so we are pleased that we are now working on plans with Browns Kitchen of Mundford and Festivaldelgusto  for a new food market near the town of Swaffham in Norfolk in the spring of 2014.
The market will be made up of many less well known small food and drink producers from Norfolk and Suffolk as well as several organic producers from Italy who will be coming over to the UK specially to take part in this exciting new market.
Slow Food in East Anglia already works closely with Slow Food UK and Slow Food London on promotional events in the south of England and we are hoping that several members of Slow Food London will be present at the first market next April.




The market in Mundford will have a cross section of local food and drink producers, which will include local Norfolk and Suffolk meat, bread, cheese, cakes and beer, as well as olive oil, chocolate, honey and possibly wines from Slow Food members in Italy.
Slow Food Norwich will have a dedicated stand on which we will promote the ethos of the Slow Food movement which has a large international following and has groups in most countries in the world. We will also be hoping to attract new members to join Slow Food Norwich at this very exciting time for this growing movement.
Browns in Mundford have established a very fine reputation for excellent food they offer to the public in the two years that they have been open, their chefs working to a very high standard and we are pleased that all the food available to eat on the day will be from there kitchens.
More details about the first Browns Festivaldelgusto market will be available on this blog, the Festivaldelgusto blog and Browns in early 2014 and we are all looking forward to his very special food event in Norfolk next spring.
