Look out for quirky ‘pop-up’ style community events that bring people together in real-life. Events generally have a sustainable feel and promote and support local producers where possible.
Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival Fringe – 2013
Posted by Mark in the CowbridgeHub Facebook Group
‘Awesome time at the Cowbridge Food Festival today, one of the most memorable moments was at the Fringe with the “cow” cob oven with the freshly cooked bread and garlic butter – it really was fantastic!
Overall the Fringe was amazing, so much to see and do – my wife was quite taken by the chickens and the advice on how to keep them. Food was plentiful and so tempting, we couldn’t resist with a lot of it. We might go back down tomorrow ’
