  1. i would sooner go to a shop ,at least i have a rough idea of what i might be eating, and its been subject to quality control . usualy these fairs are a overpriced gimmick event.

    • I suppose it depends what you choose to buy. In supermarkets they can stock a range from mass produced low end products (£8.64 a kilo) up to high end handcrafted blue cheese at £20 a kilo.

  2. Democrat, how many local producers were there, the same ones you can buy from each month at Cliftonville farmers market?
    It is mostly alcohol and street food sellers, take away the farmers market sellers and what else is left.
    I would much prefer to patronise the local market each month and support them throughout the whole year.

    • We pride ourselves on only booking traders who have the following: evidence of current Health and Safety in Food Handling certificates, be registered with their local authority and have had recent inspection by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) gaining either 4 or a 5 (5 being the maximum)

      • We, like the Broadstairs Food Festival, also pride ourselves on all our stallholders holding Public Liability Insurance for 5 million and for those handling food, a Hygiene Rating from their local councils.
        CFM also holds PLI for 10 million.
        We are affiliated to KFMA Kent Farmers Market Association.
        All farmers’ markets have to adhere to these rules.
        Thank you Jack Green for your support.

    • Jack : we in turn support Cliftonville Market as customers and by promoting them on our social media each month. Some of the Cliftonville traders are with us too and have been for any years.
      The festival simply gives them a chance to reach a wider audience
