Dorset Food and Drink join up with Nothe Fort Event

Two WPCC members join forces for the The Dorset Food and Drink (DF&D) Mini Pop up Market coming back to the Nothe Fort, Weymouth on Sunday 30 August from 11-4!

With events off the menu for 2020, Dorset Food & Drink continue to support and promote their fantastic producers by exploring new partnership opportunities to give their members a slice of DF&D action. With markets given the go ahead after lockdown, then pop ups are the way to go.

DF&D Coordinator Caroline Richards said: “It was brilliant to be invited to ‘pop-up’ at the Nothe Fort, and we’re here again this weekend with our second mini market. You’ll find us inside this fantastic attraction from 11-4.

Our producers are really looking forward to seeing everyone and hope lots of holiday makers and locals will drop in and buy some incredible edibles for the bank holiday weekend!”

Shop for a great range of local produce, products and crafts. Choose from homemade Scotch eggs, sausage rolls, tarts and crumbly local cheese. Locally made artisan gin, beer, wine, sweet treats, coffee beans, spicy sauces and kitchen tools.

Come and meet this lovely lot on Sunday.

Also joining the market are local artists and craftspeople Jenny Penney, Sally Massey – Drift Weymouth, Maree Dethick-Jones – Mooni Gooni Glass, Bill Crumbleholme – Potter and William Brown – Jewellery maker.

Normal entry fee into the fort applies as the market is an added value attraction by the Nothe Fort, but the good news is that your Nothe pass is valid for a year, so if you are local, then you can pop in and see us again for FREE in September!

Look forward to seeing you on Sunday 30 August!
