This year, the festival taking place on Bank Holiday weekend 27-28th August, will also welcome the two familiar faces of Howard Middleton and Ali Imdad, former Great British Bake Off contestants, who will be presenting free baking demonstrations.
This will see the city centre streets lined once more with food and drink stalls from specialist producers, including a wide range of street food.
Jon Arrowsmith, Director of Cocker-hoop Creative, said: “This year’s market is set to be our biggest yet, with 150 stalls and counting. We’ve got a great selection of traders, bringing a diverse mix of food and drink.
“We’re looking forward to a selection of Caribbean, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Polish, Malaysian and Chinese street food. We’ve also got a pizzeria, and pop-up coffee and alcohol bars, as well as producers selling olives, chutneys, artisan bread, cheese, homemade tarts, cakes, fudge and so much more.
“We’re also busy putting together plans for the live cookery demonstrations at Lichfield Cathedral that will be headlined by Great British Bake Off stars, as well as chefs and bakers from across the region.
“These activities wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors, so on behalf of all the team at the food festival, thank you again.”
