The Real Food Festival 2010

Back for a third year, The Real Food Festival 2010 is set to take place in London‘s Earls Court from 7-10 May 2010. Packed with events for the whole family, the show provides a platform for hundreds of smaller producers for whom attendance at such shows is normally too costly. The festival selects the best small producers and subsidises their attendance, thus giving them an opportunity to grow their businesses and offering visitors an introduction to Britain’s real food heroes.

Tickets to the festival will cost much less than in previous years – in an effort to make the show more accessible, visitors can now buy a ticket in advance for only £9.50 and children under 16 go free of charge.

Highlights of this year’s show include the Real Food Market, a line-up of over 400 producers; top chefs, including the likes of Raymond Blanc, Thomasina Miers and Giorgio Locatelli, in action; Riverford Organic’s Field Kitchen, a restaurant dishing up gutsy dishes of the farm’s own produce; Chocolate Unwrapped, a dedicated chocolate show which takes place as part of Chocolate Week; and an array of livestock, from Petal the water buffalo to pigs, chickens and sheep, to help demonstrate to children the idea of where food comes from.
