Leek Food & Drink Festival will be held through the town centre of Leek and in the historic market place at the heart of the town.

The weekend of the festival (March 15th & 16th) is the third of the month and this usually hosts Leek’s monthly fine food market in the market place. In addition to the 20 odd stalls who are regulars for the market there will be another 50 stalls plus hot food vendors and beer tent in the Roebuck and another 15 stalls in Leek’s new public space, Sparrow Park  and further stalls through the streets of the town centre, linking the whole festival, the fabulous food shops of Leek, the pubs, restaurants, cafes and plethora of independent shops.

Although 2014 will be the first time Leek has hosted a food and drink festival, the foundations for the event are based in Leek’s fine food market and the monthly Totally Locally Sunday Supplement which already attract some of the best local food producers.

We’ll have more details of the programme of talks, demonstrations, stall holders and layouts closer to the event – in the meantime why not follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest news and updates
