Oundle Food Festival 2017
On Saturday 24th June 2017 the town of Oundle had its annual Food Festival. Oundle itself is a rather beautiful and quaint historical market town which is really worth a visit even when there isnt a Food Festival. There are many tea houses and coffee shops to visit set within the 300 year old limestone buildings.
As food festivals go, this was an incredibly good and organised festival. They had even thought of parking in a nearby field, with a regular shuttle bus that ran every five minutes to and from the festival. For a small town it was also a very large festival with an abundance of foodie stalls.
Below is a list of some of the artisan foodie companies that were there:
Among the stall holders were:
