All about local food in and around the Herefordshire market town of Ledbury

Slider

From the fruits of the land to traditional cider and perry, rare breed livestock, artisan food producers and much more, the Ledbury Food Group helps you discover the local ‘heroes’ who produce our food. You can meet our ‘heroes’ at food fairs and markets, farm visits and open days, on organised walks and at special food events.

We connect producers, retailers and consumers to encourage the availability of local food. Buying locally helps protect our rural landscape, sustains the heritage of our market town and boosts the economy of the area. We are proud of Ledbury’s numerous independent food outlets.

We organise the Ledbury Big Breakfast at the end of January and the food and drink festival for the Ledbury Celebration on the final day of the Poetry Festival in July. Let’s celebrate our local food heritage!
