Thousands flock to the Essex Food Festival for the 7th consecutive year...

The Essex Festival of Food and Drink which took place over the weekend (14/15th July) celebrated delicious food and drink, particularly from Essex and the East Anglian region, championing real food and drink from real producers!

Take a dash of Tom Kerridge, a pinch of Chris Galvin, a sprinkling of food love from Fred Sirieix, a veritable feast from other local chefs, coupled with lots of great food and drink samples and warm weather and you have the perfect ingredients for a great family day out! 

Our "The Only Way is Local" marquee hosted around 20 of our local food suppliers, whose products are available in our convenience food stores; the marquee was visited by thousands of visits from all over the county and beyond.
