Local Trade Stands & Food Outlets

We have a great selection of food outlets lined up, who will offer their delicious food all day. These vary from Pig and Pallet who rear and cure their own meats, Kernowforno with their wood fired pizzas, to Thyme and Tide with their wood fired fish and vegetarian burgers and many more!

We welcome guests to browse our variety of local trade stands, which will include food based stands, as well as BBQ orientated stands. A full list of trade stands will follow shortly, but to name a few, we have already secured The Cornish Food Box Company, Pro Q and River Amble Creamery.

If you are interested in exhibiting at the event, applications are still open. Please email for more information.
