Celebrate the Isle of Purbeck’s finest food & drink

PUBLISHED: 15:16 19 June 2014 | UPDATED: 15:16 19 June 2014


Church Knowle Food Fayre - Sunday July 20th 10am – 4pm

Church Knowle is a tiny village nestled in the heart of the Isle of Purbeck. Our only claim to fame is the first inhabited farm ever recorded in the Domesday book so how, you might wonder, did we become home to the Isle of Purbeck’s finest food fayre?

Well, this area of Dorset is home to a myriad of innovative artisan producers; everything from goat farmers and market gardeners to micro brewers, fishermen and ice cream makers. So it was obvious, let’s host a Food Fayre giving visitors the chance to sample the charms of a small traditional village with the bonus of all there is to eat, drink and enjoy at a Food Fayre.(Whilst also raising money for the village hall to get a new roof!)

With over 30 artisan stalls laden with locally reared meat, wild game, fresh crab, line caught fish, smoked seafood, cured & air dried charcuterie, savoury vegetarian tarts, seasonal fruit, vegetables, herbs, jam, chutney, honey, cheese, cakes, ice cream and chocolate you won’t be going away hungry. (We are also proud to be supported by Dorset Food and Drink, ‘Wild Purbeck` and The Wildlife Trust.)

There is lots to see and do with live cookery & butchery demonstrations from Lee @ Dorset Charcuterie and the newly opened The Pig - on the Beach, plus chocolate workshops, cake decorating and lessons in fish filleting to keep the young, and those young at heart happy. Or why not simply wile away the afternoon in beautiful countryside sipping Pimm’s or delighting in a Summer Pudding or traditional Dorset Cream Tea, the choice is yours, but one word of advice, it’s best not to eat a big breakfast before you come!
