It is distributed locally and nationally and awaits every visitor. Many of our food producers have onsite shops, and produce can be found at regular Farmers' Markets and other outlets throughout the area.

The Flavours of Herefordshire food festival takes place on August bank holiday weekend in the heart of Hereford.
