On Thursday 23rd March the very first Local Food Show was held in Carlisle at H&H Bordermart, Rosehill. Bringing together suppliers from across Cumbria, Northumbria and south west Scotland the event was the perfect opportunity for local producers to gather to showcase the fantastic range and quality foods which are available in the area.
We, of course, produce our very own Lakeland beef, lamb and pork as well as championing products of local suppliers. Our stand showcased a fantastic selection of our butchery products and also other foods such as Claire’s Handmade jams and chutneys, Bruce and Luke’s coffee, Silver & Green olives and much, much more.
The event was well supported by some of the city’s largest suppliers such as McVities and Nestle, but was also a great opportunity for small producers such as Cows & Co artisan cheese makers and Traybakes to promote their wonderful foods. With a high turnout and many visitors to our stand, we feel the first event was a great success!
