There will also be hot food available to buy, Fifteen Cornwall will be selling their famous ‘bad boy bacon butties’ with rocket and Andy Appleton’s tomato chutney, and Origin Coffee will be on hand to serve freshly roasted steaming cups of coffee.

This is the second year that First Great Western has been our official partner for our bi-annual Fayres. Working together to promote stories of food provenance and to take people on a journey of discovery, whether you are travelling for fun, to see friends and family or for business, our aim is to make connections with people and with food.
