National Cherry & Soft Fruit Show At Macknade Faversham
We are thrilled to host the prestigious National Cherry & Soft Fruit Show at our Faversham store this weekend (Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th July)
The event, which is normally held at the Kent Show, attracts entries from all across the UK and provides the opportunity for the nations growers to showcase the superb variety and quality of soft and stone fruit the country has to offer.
A bumper crop is expected to be entered in this year’s contest featuring not only cherries but also strawberries, raspberries and apricots too.
On Friday 23rd, a judging panel consisting of esteemed representatives from the fruit world, will taste and score the varieties in each category with certificates and silverware being awarded to the best in class.
The following day, our team will arrange all the fruit at the front of the store for sale, with 50% of the proceeds going to support FoodLoop – an initiative which aims to reduce unnecessary food waste by redistributing surplus food to those who need it.
You can find out more about FoodLoop and pick up some award winning fruit to take home with you on Saturday from 9am.
We’ll see you there!
