Dorset Food Fortnight
Once again the much loved Dorset Food Week returns to celebrate the great tastes of Dorset! by this time it's a fortnight.
The autumnal festivities will be kicked off by the Wimborne Minster Food & Drink Festival on the 22nd October and will continue through to 6th November 2016.
There will be a variety of activities and events available across the county - tours, demonstrations, taster days and family-friendly activities. Our members and many other local food and drink businesses will be inviting you all to learn about what makes their business unique to Dorset. You will have the opportunity to discover where our local food and drink is produced as well as how to incorporate it into your life (which is easier and cheaper than you might think!).
Keep an eye out for updates on Facebook or twitteron which we post information regularly.
