Institute of Continuing Education


Celebrating the best in local artisan food and produce, from butchers and bakers to local gin makers. This pop-up farmers' market allows you experience taste sensations and then purchase to enjoy at home. With talks and demonstrations throughout the day (including tours of Madingley Hall's medicinal and kitchen gardens), why not begin with a bacon roll on arrival and stay on for the BBQ lunch?

Stalls open and breakfast is served from 8.00 to 11.00am, with a BBQ lunch from 12.00 to 2.00pm. Head home, enthused and replete by 2.30pm.
