Welcome to the Local Food and Drink web site for the Bradford on Avon area.
This site has been created to help residents and visitors find the best of local food and drink in Bradford on Avon and the surrounding area, whether wishing to dine out or eat at home.
The A Local Larder food and drink food fair in March invited buyers from cafes, pubs, shops, restaurants, delicatessens, hotels B&Bs to meet local food and drink producers. The event also opened to the public for the final hour and a half. Overall it was deemed a success by all and with producers continuing to benefit from contacts made. The leaflet detailing the producers and supporters is available as a download from the A Local Larder page.
A Local Larder complements and enhances the local food directory which lists outlets that offer local food and drink, plus the producers. Printed versions are also on display in various locations around Bradford on Avon.
If you are a producer or an outlet of local food or drink please use the directory sign-up form in order to be listed on future editions of the printed map as well as on this website.
As well as helping the public to find outlets, the directory also enables businesses in the retail and hospitality sectors to increase their offering of local food and drink by enabling them to easily identify producers in the area.
Buying from local producers and the outlets that stock their products helps support local business, in town and country, as well as ensuring you get delicious, traceable food at its freshest. Reducing the distance from field to fork can contribute to a lower carbon footprint and increase food security, whilst adding to the unique character of the area. In the Bradford on Avon area there is increasing availability of wonderful local food and drink produced by farmers and producers passionate about the quality and integrity of their goods.
