It’s very nearly time for the Homegrown Food Festival 2018! I’m deep into the mid year stock take too, usually I always try to fit in a stock take prior to doing events so I know what I’ve got. Since it’s such a local event I generally try and take everything I have in the studio with me. Doing the stock take also reveals if you lack certain items and this year turns out I have absolutely loads of little milk jugs. Who knew?
The Food Festival is a great day out and takes place at the Applegarth in Northallerton which is just behind Barker’s department store on the high street. It’s open on the 24th of April from 10am until 5pm. For a family day out there are plenty of activities for kids from food to crafts. For the adults there’s also live music and craft beer served in the tipple tent!
The food stalls are also really varied and it’s nice to see ‘The Little Korean’ back for another year. That was one of my favorites from last year! I know this year they’ve been putting in a lot of effort to find more vegetarian and vegan options. From other food fairs I’ve been to I know this is sometimes a struggle.
Because I sometimes get asked – I will have yarn bowls at this event. There won’t be many since what I’ll have are all seconds. So it’s first come first served if your wanting one!
If you miss out on being at the Food Festival my next event won’t be until winter. I’ll be back at Tennant’s Auction House for their Christmas Fair in December at the end of the year. That’s a long way off for now! If I sign up for any other events in between I’ll announce them here on the Blog.
