The Love Northampton Food Fair is returning to the Guildhall this summer to celebrate and showcase a range of local businesses, producers and makers.

On Saturday, 18 August 23 mouth-watering stalls will be offering delectable delights such as bread, popcorn, chutneys, cakes, wine and cider. The courtyard will also host a number of stalls offering hot food such as Jamaican street food, chicken wraps and samosas.

In addition to the wide range of food, drink and treats ready to sample and buy, the Food Fair will be hosting a number of talks and activities.

In the morning, Friars Farm will be sharing the history of chutney with visitors and will have a 100-year-old recipe made up for sampling at 11am.

Also at lunchtime, Fleur Field Vineyard will have their three Northampton Champagne method wines to taste as well as a red wine, a rose and two still white wines.

Cllr Jonathan Nunn, leader of the Council, said: “The first Love Northampton Food Fair in February was so popular, both with businesses and shoppers, we knew we had to repeat the event here at the Guildhall.

“Entrance to the fair is free again and will provide visitors with a great opportunity to get a flavour of local independent businesses, and the services and produce they have to offer.”

The Love Northampton Summer Food Fair will take place at the Guildhall on Saturday, 18 August from 10.30am to 3pm. Entry is free.
