The Ginger and Spice Festival

The festival takes place annually during British Food Fortnight in Market Drayton – the home of gingerbread.

During the festival we feature the Spice Exchange Street Market an extension of the town’s regular Saturday market, where you can journey into an exotic and fascinating world of spice, secret recipes, ancient gingerbread guilds and delicious hot & spicy street food.

The market will include everything from ginger teas, spicy pies, chocolate en-robed gingers, spice-infused jams, aromatic gin, local real ale, cured gourmet meats as well as a host of ginger-themed delicacies! There will also be live cookery master classes from top, regional and local chefs.

Location: Market Drayton – Cheshire Street and High Street – the regular market trading areas

Open from 9.30am to 4.30pm. THIS MARKET IS FREE – NO ENTRY CHARGE
