Take the Fad Out of Food and Put the Fun Back In with food festivals
Everyone loves a good Food Show – whether you are a serious gourmand or just a hungry shopper, your tastebuds will be tantalised and your appetite most decidedly whetted at one of Oakleigh Fairs’ Food Shows.
Not only can you browse, sample and buy from a range of local and national exhibitors covering everything from appetisers through to zesters with jellies jams and marinades together with pots pans and pies in between – everything to get you inspired from kitchen to plate for both family and friends and from simple recipe ideas through to full blown feasts.
Our fairs also showcase some of the finest cooks and chefs in the Events Show Kitchen to put their own twist to even the most tried and tested of dishes as well as sharing tips from the top encompassing all the latest trends in modern cooking but ensuring they are more fun than fad and healthy to boot
And what about if you are a seller? Well, we are delighted to encourage as many ‘foodies’ as possible to ALL of our events, not just those specifically marketed as a Food and Craft Fair. We actively champion ‘real food’ – not just organics but food where you can understand the provenance, feel the passion that goes into crafting a brand new flavour, concept or product and we give you a showcase to deliver that directly to the consumer with stand costs kept reasonable for the weekend. You might even be able to demo your product within our Events Show Kitchen at some of our events.
We keep it very simple in terms of pricing with size options available but no hidden extras on top. Most stands offer free electricity, tables and chairs and there is no VAT payable on top
Meat, Fish, Vegetables, Vegetarian, Vegan, Organic, Free-from, Natural, Flavours, Food, Cheese and Dairy, Drink, Gin, Artisan, Vodka, Sauces, Pesto, Confectionary, Bakery, Sweets, Savouries, Pies, Condiments – all welcome.
We also encourage products that sit happily alongside such as cookware, knives, graters and peelers, glasses, tableware, napkins, table cloths, cups, mugs, slow cookers, frying and other pans, drying up cloths, baskets, bags, bowls and plates
All of our food festivals welcome Food Stalls (retail food to take away, rather than catering which comes under a separate booking process) but our Food and Craft Fairs:
Essex Food Craft Food & Gift Fair, Cressing Temple Barns CM77 8PD Spring: 28 & 29 March, Autumn 26 & 27 September and our Christmas Fair 7 & 8 November 2020

So what are the benefits of bookings shows with us?
Well for a start we try and keep costs as straightforward as possible. The price you see on our booking form at https://www.oakleighfairs.co.uk/traders-space/ is what you pay. We also include free chairs, tables and electricity if you book space inside our marquees.
So if you have a chiller or similar, all you have to do is tell us how much electricity you need on the booking form and we shall supply it
We also have a discount scheme which kicks in after just 5 shows with us
