As part of the Bidwells Norfolk & Norwich Food Festival, The Green Grocers host The Food&Ale Fringe.
It takes place on Sunday October 12th 10am-4pm right outside the shop and is FREE. As well as incorporating the Golden Triangle Farmers Market, there will also be a local beer and cider bar run by the Grain and Humpty Dumpty breweries with beers from all over the county. Live music from local bands will be playing for most of the day. In the food marquee we will have food adventures with Kids Pizza Making; demonstrations on cooking Game, Indian food and a great lamb dish served up by Richard Hughes, chef of the Lavender House in Brundhall. For bread lovers Norman Olley will be showing how to bake well and then we have sausage making for the kids. A great day out. You can find out times here.
The fringe is all about local food and this year we're trying to highlight that local food is not expensive. We've mentioned this in previous posts and we've done another survey that shows, again, that local producers and independent stores are beating the supermarkets in value for money. Have a look here and see how much you can save.
Finally, we'd like to say thanks to all those who attended GreenStock08. It was a great event and well attended after the rain stopped. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves - there were many people who contributed to reducing the effects of climate change by drinking as much of the Adnams Carbon Neutral beer as possible! The music was great we hope that the public and stallholders alike found the day inspirational in looking at practical measures to reducing your own carbon footprint. Many thanks to our funders and sponsors, namely NORCA, Norwich City Council, Lottery Awards for All; and, Toyota Dingles, Anglia Print Ltd, Adnams, Booja Booja and Cut Your Carbon.
