Eat Cambridge, the city’s annual celebration of local independent food and drink, returns this month, offering a huge market followed by a fortnight of fringe events. The Main Event is on 11 May at The Guildhall – a bustling market where you can try and buy all sorts of delicious food and drink, plus meet producers. Stalls this year include BrewBoard brewery, Hot Numbers coffee, One Part Love Bakery, Cambridge Distillery and lots more.
There’s also a line-up of hands-on sessions and talks running throughout the day, which includes a food photography workshop and a round table with the cream of Cambridge’s brewing scene.
The Main Event is followed by a fortnight of fringe events, which span everything from pop-ups to supper clubs and tap takeovers.
Top picks include the street food cinema event, with the Star and Mouse Picture Show screening Chef at Coton Orchard at 7.30pm on 18 May, with foodPark in attendance and supper on a bus with La Latina Bustaurante.
There are still tickets left for BYO seats, which are £7 and get you in to watch the film and work your way around the food trucks.
For the full programme and booking details, head to the Eat Cambridge website.
Be warned, though, that some events have already sold out. Flourish & Friends, and the Restaurant 22 wild dinner both have no tickets left, with just a few remaining to be snapped up for the Thorne Wines/Pint Shop sherry-matching dinner.
