Whether it’s established or upcoming, we were looking for a farmers’ market, food festival, monthly pop-up or similar with a little foodie magic

And the winner is…

Woking Food and Drink Festival

Judge James Cannon says:

“This is such a difficult category to judge, especially when each of these three events, while varying in size, play such an important part in their local communities – whether that is by supporting their food and drink industry or providing a hub for local residents to gather. Each of our finalists is doing a sterling job, but I plumped for Woking Food & Drink Festival because of the sheer scale and ambition the festival has achieved in such a short time. One look down the chef’s demonstration roster and you’ll find not only famous national names but also a host of local talent.”

Highly commended:

Thames Ditton Farmers’ Market

Ripley Farmers’ Market
