Shropshire Food Fair is introduced at Discovery Centre.

26th June 2018

Shropshire Food Fair is introduced at Discovery Centre. The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre in Craven Arms has been run by local charity, Grow Cook Learn for the last four years. Their mission is to make it an education and training centre for food-related skills, a visitor attraction linking food, history and landscape in the Shropshire Hills and a leisure resource for visitors and local residents.

Grow Cook Learn are passionate about people appreciating the wonderful outdoor world around them and how what they eat is connected to that world.

The staff of the charity are set to launch their inaugural Shropshire Food Fair and are inviting local food and drink providers to exhibit on Saturday 4th August. It is intended this fair will be mainly for locally produced food and drink to promote local suppliers in Shropshire and surrounding areas.

Centre Manager, Grant Wilson, says “With over 100,000 visitors a year, the Centre is a hub of activity for residents of the local community as well as holiday makers that are interested in the local landscape and the wonderful food and drink it has to offer. This is a fantastic opportunity for producers to showcase their products and reach out to a wide audience.”

If you are interested in exhibiting, contact the Centre on 01588676060 or email for more information. Application forms should be in by Friday 29th June.
