Ledbury Food Group asks would you like to help?

We are a group of volunteers passionate about supporting our local farmers, food producers and shops as a means of sustaining a thriving market town at the heart of this exceptional farming area.

We would like to welcome some new members to join our management team and help to maintain the Group’s activity. Currently the team is small (just five individual members supported by a producer and two town councillors).

Locals and visitors joined in the hot summer sun to enjoy a street market of local food and drink supplied by 30 local producers and organised by Ledbury Food Group celebrating our unique local food offerings. Al fresco eating was on offer but with the hot sun many favoured the shade areas provided by the Nest and Dragon Orchard. The local ice cream was especially popular, and other stall holders sold out.
