More about the festival
The Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival began in 2006 to celebrate and publicise the abundance of Suffolks local produce and also to help people reconnect with the countryside and the food it provides. One of the objectives of the festival is to demonstrate the strong connection between food and the market towns, the villages, the countryside, the rivers and the sea. It returns again this year, running from 29th September to 14th October 2012 with the food and drink weekend being held over the weekend of 29th – 30th September 2012.

The festival is held each year at Snape Maltings, situated on the river Alde in a landscape of open skies, marshland and reedbeds. The historic Victorian maltings are the best-preserved brick malt kilns in Britain and are home to the world-famous concert halls of the Aldeburgh Festival of Music as well as a collection of shops selling food, kitchenware, crafts, art, books and much else. In this uniquely beautiful setting, the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival has become established as one of the foremost food festivals in Britain.

This year the festival is expecting over 90 exhibitors showcasing organic vegetables, fresh and smoked fish, rare breed meat and game, cheeses, frozen yoghurt, jams, beer, wine and lager. Virtually all of the exhibitors’ businesses are based in East Suffolk, reflecting the high quality and tremendous variety of food and drink in the region.

So far these are the The Artisan Food Trail producers/businesses that will be attending:
