Food and Gift Fair to showcase Lincoln’s newest foodie superstars

Foodies will be able to get their fill of Lincolnshire’s best produce, from specially crafted rum, to New York-inspired bakes at this month’s Lincolnshire Food and Gift Fair.

Dozens of new, local and exciting exhibitors will be taking stands at the Lincolnshire Showground, including popular New York-inspired bakery 42nd East Bakehouse and The Unconventional Distillery Co., both exhibiting at the event for the first time.

The Unconventional Distillery Co. is one of Lincoln’s newest producers and is looking to lead the rum revolution with its expertly crafted creations already being stocked in bars and shops throughout the city.

The whole brewing process for the company’s various spirits is controlled in-house from start to finish, including the initial creation of cane neutral spirit. All of the products are crafted by owner Sam Owen and director Ryan Leighton who work together to create unique flavour blends for each product range.

42nd East Bakehouse opened in Lincoln’s Central Market earlier this summer and has already built a strong presence in the city thanks to its delectable American inspired treats such as brownie slabs, gooey cookies, deep fried Oreos and birthday batter croissants. Visitors to the Fair will be able to shop the range of freshly baked treats across the two-day event.

As well as the cookery workshops hosted by 42nd East Bakehouse, there will be plenty of activities to keep little ones busy at one of the biggest festive fairs in the county.

The popular Santa’s Workshop area will be returning for another year to provide hours of free entertainment, including a reindeer food bar, pet bandanas designing workshop with Zukie Style, Christmas pottery painting with The Little Pottery Studio, willow weaving with Lincolnshire Willow and storytelling from Lincoln Performing Arts Centre.

Jayne Southall, CEO of the Lincolnshire Showground, said: “Being involved in the Fair can really help to increase brand awareness for exhibitors and allows them to access wider audiences. Our visitors are always really keen to get to know all about local producers and their products – people love to buy locally, and it is great that we can offer such a variety to suit all tastes.

“The Unconventional Distillery Co. and 42nd East Bakehouse have both really made their mark on the Lincolnshire community in the last few months, so we’re thrilled they will be joining us this year. They – along with 150 other exhibitors – will provide visitors with the biggest celebration of Lincolnshire produce this winter, and the perfect opportunity for some festive shopping too.”

The Lincolnshire Food and Gift Fair is open from 9am to 4pm on Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December 2019 and visitors will have access to free parking.
