The annual, award winning Ginger & Spice Festival is taking place on Saturday 25th September 2021 in Market Drayton – the Home of Gingerbread – in Shropshire.
In celebration of British Food Fortnight, enjoy a FREE spicy street market on Cheshire street (in the centre of town) including a range of local, artisan producers, many with a ginger and spicy twist!
Meander through the streets of Market Drayton and out into the Shropshire countryside – including the Shropshire Union canal – on the brand new ‘Fodder and Tipple’ Tasting Trail. This ticketed event which takes in the floating market will include local tasting courses & refreshers at several stop offs along the 5 mile route, plus a goody bag with local artisan produce!
Also, enjoy a free of charge self-guided heritage trail & contest available for families, including visiting buildings and places of historical significance with a fun and educational heritage quiz for the little ones.
