2016 Festival : 28th – 30th May
Eat Drink Shop!
The Sheffield Food Festival has grown up into one of the best loved weekends in the city’s event calendar and takes particular pride in showcasing the fabulous quality and diversity of food and drink produced within the region.
Brought together into an enormous feast over the spring bank holiday weekend bring along your shopping bags – reusable of course – and a hungry belly because there will be something to tempt everyone!
Sheffield is home to a thriving range of local food businesses – from restaurants, cafes, street food traders, farmers, butchers, bakers, delis, ice cream parlours, fruit cake makers and bee keepers to name just a few, many of them will be here in the City for the weekend helping us to create one enormous farmer’s market, the real heart of our festival.
Award winning sausages from our beloved Moss Valley to the most beautiful of hand crafted sour dough loaves from Seven Hills Bakery, deliciously exciting sorbets from Yee Kwan, craft beers and cider from our micro-breweries, macaroons from Joni, gin from Locksley and jams from Hedgerow Preserving Company ! And that’s just for your bags! There will be Pies, pizza, burritos, salads, noodles and more for you to enjoy a picnic in the Peace Gardens.
It’s not only about eating, drinking and shopping however, visit our friends from the Whirlow Hall Farm at their pop up farm yard, sow a few seeds with Ferndale, learn a bit about food waste with Approved Food and laugh along with the BBC radio Sheffield presenters as they line up to do battle in the annual Ready Steady Cook competition.
There will be loads to see and do, we are looking forward to seeing you all, here’s to a fabulous weekend!
