Dorset Food and Drink is hosting the first of its new mini pop up producers markets this Sunday at Nothe Fort in Weymouth. With events off the menu for much of 2020, Dorset Food & Drink has committed to continue to support and promote our fantastic local Dorset food and drink producers by looking at different ways to trade and engage with the community. Part of this has included exploring new partnership opportunities and venues to give our members a slice of DF&D action and came up with the idea of small ‘pop up’ producer markets.
DF&D Coordinator, Caroline Richards, said: “We are thrilled to have been invited to ‘pop-up’ at the Nothe Fort and work with the team and volunteers to bring a taste of the ‘Dorset Larder’ to visitors and holidaymakers.”
Nothe Fort is a historic sea fort in the town of Weymouth where a number of events take place throughout the year. The fort has received the Good to Go accreditation and is open to the public with Covid-19 safety regulations in place.
