For the third year running, Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival will include the ‘fairandfunky family food zone’ - an exciting, interesting and unique marketplace within Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival, showcasing a range of local and Fairtrade/ethical stallholders.
Over the festival weekend Holmfirth Market will be filled with stallholders from the Yorkshire Region selling Fairtrade, recycled, organic, or locally produced goods – food AND gifts.
Holme Valley Fairtrade will have a stall in the 'fairandfunky Family Food Zone' on both the Saturday and the Sunday of the festival - do join us to celebrate all things Fairtrade throughout the weekend!
This year, Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival is also working to be ‘plastic clever’ with a ban on plastic straws and a move to all takeaway containers being eco-friendly. Priority will be given to stalls who can demonstrate that they too are ‘plastic clever’.
