One of the largest and most visited food festivals in Cumbria is holding a special fabulously festive one this December the 9th and 10th.. The location, Cockermouth for the Taste Cumbria Christmas Food Festival.
The streets of the historic market town of Cockermouth in the Western Lake District will be filled full of local producers, suppliers and food providers. You’re sure not to go hungry and to get all the last minute gifts as well as tasty treats for the big day.
Cockermouth is such a delightful town, full of heritage and history being a pleasure to walk around and visit dozens of stalls during the weekend as well as the many independent foodie shops based in the town. On top of the food stalls there will be masterclasses and demonstrations from local chefs, of course mulled wine (no Christmas food festival is complete without that!) and even crafts and decorations for the Christmas home and table.
Most definitely also look out for the many local businesses offering special offers, samples and competitions, making the town the perfect place to do all your Christmas shopping and soak up the festive atmosphere Cumbrian style.

And after all the shopping and tasting, why not down tools and head to Frederick’s for some light refreshments in the form of tea, coffee or how about a festive cocktail. Fredericks’s is a lounge bar and restaurant just off the main street and is the perfect place to take the weight off your feet. Look out for the festive cocktails and treats.
