Another visit to the Blenheim Palace food fair. Eagle-eyed viewers will notice that we were here on Whitsun bank holiday weekend last year.
Once again we were camping nearby and had decided to make this our Sunday stroll. It had been a pleasant afternoon last time, so we decided to have another wander round this year. Entrance to the food fair is free, but if you arrive by car and pay for entry into the grounds, this has now gone up to £14.90 per adult, from last year’s £13.
The food fair has expanded since last year too, with more stalls opening up near to the pleasure gardens. Once again there were a good range of stalls, quite a few more hot food sellers, including GB Confit, selling confit duck which was very tasty indeed. The nice people from Two Cocks brewery were back, and several of our group stocked up on their beers. There were another couple of booze stalls, including cider and gin, alongside crisps, cheese, sausages, marshmallows and chutneys.
Lots of lovely things to taste and take home – just make sure you can carry everything. A grand day out!
