The first Local producers food tent Tod show

Last update: 23.06.14 First posted: 22.06.14 by in

Todmorden Show has always had masses of exotic food vans and stalls selling things like ostrich burgers and the like although there is no ostrich farm in Tod. Sadly they have never really promoted local until this year. Well done Agg show organizers for allowing the showcasing of some of the best local food around.

Super well done to SJ Clegg who through masses of hard work became our very own local food champion extraordinaire. Incredible local food champion SJ Clegg
Without SJ’s efforts above and beyond I don’t think this would have happened.

The Eat and Drink Todmorden tent was a massive success,
