Saturday 7 September
- Time10.30am for approx. 2 hours
This is an exclusive walking tour for GWN members, run by Emma at Coutours.
This is an unmissable opportunity to explore some small-scale food manufacturers who operate under the arches. The area enjoys a unique edible history with such names as Sarson’s vinegar, Gordon’s gin, Peek Frean’s biscuits and Hartley’s jam to name but a few. As we walk over to the markets, we learn why this area became associated with food and drink and also find out more about the initiative to encourage small businesses to create handmade foods in under-utilised railway arches. As we walk around the markets, we experience bold new flavours and some old favourites re-incarnated.
Taking in little-known culinary gems such as Spa Terminus and Maltby Street markets, the tour is perfect for those who are looking for something adventurous and fun. We taste delicious cheeses made in the area as well as sample jams, bread and honey.
