Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards 2017

Archant

Whether it was an established or upcoming event, we were looking for a farmers’ market, food festival, monthly pop-up or similar that has shown the ability to garner a following, create a community of foodies and maintain its foodie magic. Here’s the finalists for 2017...

Woking Food and Drink Festival

“Woking Food and Drink Festival, now in its fifth year, has grown in popularity and serves as a platform to showcase the region’s best culinary talent and produce, alongside some of the nation’s favourite celebrity chefs,” says Celebrate Woking project manager, Riëtte Thomas. “Food and drink producers, who you might not know were on your doorstep, flock to Woking to share their quality offer. Partnerships and collaborations have been formed across the borough and county to bring high-calibre food and drink experts to the event.”

Thames Ditton Farmers’ Market

“Thames Ditton Farmers’ Market celebrates its second birthday in October 2017 and we are delighted to be an awards finalist for the second year running,” says market manager Mick Pearson. “Our farmers’ market is a true community hub, bringing the village together once a month for fun, food and entertainment. Run by volunteers, in addition to a fabulous array of fresh produce from farmers and artisans, we are proud to support local artists and performers with a mission to support Thames Ditton’s independent High Street.”

Surbiton Farmers’ Market

“It’s amazing to think that our lovely market is now in its eighth year,” says chairman, David Jacobson. “Having established itself as a destination for the very best in local produce, it’s become a real community hub, a place where friends and neighbours can and meet and soak up Maple Road’s villagey atmosphere. Being nominated for an award is a real testament to our spirited volunteers who work relentlessly organising monthly markets and special events and helping raise money for local good causes – over £60,000 so far!”
