The event archive:
Ross Geach and Jack Stein will take part in the first FRINGE event. They will be showcasing St Enodoc Asparagus. A local to Padstow supplier, who’s business only has a 6-week window to sell their produce. With the restaurants, they usually sell to closed, and their season short, we knew we had to help raise awareness. St Enodoc is now offering a local delivery service for their produce when you buy it on their website!
[After event update]
St Enodoc asparagus have got in touch with us to let us know that the Virtual Food Festival has ‘saved their season’!
Mitch Tonks, restauranteur based in Dartmouth – The Seahorse & The Rockfish Group, reached out to St Enodoc, ordered 100 bunches to be delivered to Brixham harbour where Mitch set up a stall outside his restaurant and sold out in a matter of minutes. The response was amazing and Mitch has ordered 400 more bunches and will set up the stall again next week.
See the positive impact of the Virtual Food Festival and the people that are taking part…
