Mullion Cove to host Taste of the West food area at Bristol’s BIG Market

 

 

Local food company Mullion Cove will be proving just why the South West is renowned for top quality produce by hosting their own Taste of the South West food area as part of Bristol’s BIG Market on 9 June, as part of Big Green Week.

With over 200 stalls stretching from Wine Street near St Nicholas Markets, along Corn Street, across the Centre Promenade and down to the Harbourside – the market will be a fantastic showcase of the very best of the city and region’s market stalls and independent businesses.

Locally sourced products in the Taste of the South West area will include handmade pies, cold pressed rapeseed oil, Newlyn landed seafood paella, vegetarian soups, apple juice, locally reared meats, artisan goats and cows milk cheese, handmade regional biscuits and chocolates, single variety and speciality ciders, perrys and ale; farmhouse ice cream and much more.

Sophie Bowden, director of Mullion Cove said:

“We were delighted when we were approached to be a co-curator at Bristol’s Big Market. It’s been a great opportunity to showcase our local food and drink traditions and we’ve been careful to select what we believe to be some of the best producers around”

Sophie added:

“Being an endorser of Cornish food, I also wanted to get a selection of producers from Cornwall to give our customers a taste of the food I was brought up on. This will include freshly made Cornish pasties from my favourite bakery, saffron buns, Cornish fairings and delicious seafood from Newlyn’”

Explore the South West food area and learn about our local food traditions from the producers themselves and support small, local producers.

Mullion Cove’s themed area will be located in Clare and St Stephen’s street (at the bottom of Corn Street, central Bristol) on Saturday 9 June from 10am – 4pm.

Producers taking part include The Cornish Fusion Fish Company who will be providing seafood paella using fish recently landed at Cornish fishing port Newlyn and will be able to trace where their seafood comes from down to the individual fishing boat.
