We enjoyed our traditional August in West Sweden catching up with family, having some holiday, and picking porcini and other ceps to last till this time next year. It was another bumper year for these mushrooms over there and reports suggested it was the same in many other parts of Europe.
Now we’re back in the UK for the foray season and are looking forward to our first one of the season on Sunday 16 September. A late cancellation has freed up a couple of spaces so do get in touch if you are interested in coming out with us in the beautiful Peak District.
Other events coming up in Derbyshire are another tasting at High Peak Food Hub in the Butterfly House at the Torrs, in our home town of New Mills, this Thursday 13 September from 5.30-7.30. There’ll be lots of other local food producers showcasing their delicious goods and you can get a drink from the bar as you mooch and buy, so its well worth a visit!
Following that we will have a stall in the Food Marquee at the Hayfield Show on Saturday 15 September. It’s our first time there as producers rather than punters and we’re looking forward to being part of this fantastic country show which has been a September highlight for us for many years.
We’ll be doing our annual foray for New Mills Festival which this year is operating as a Fringe Festival, on Sunday 23 September. There are still places available and all details of this event and others can be found on the website of this wonderful festival, entirely run by volunteers.
Last but not least, we’ll once again be running a pop up Swedish cafe at Made in New Mills arts and crafts sale, at Providence Hall in New Mills, on Saturday 29 September from 10-4. This is a real gem of a show with the creme de la creme of artists and makers from this area, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
Oh and I’d almost forgotten, we’ll be leading another Peak District foray with lunch al fresco the day after, Sunday 30 September. There are a couple of spaces available on this date and several more on our final one on Sunday 21 October. Full details are on our UK forays page.
