Get ready to indulge in culinary delights this Easter as Market Rasen’s Food and Drink Festival returns for another spectacular year.

Food enthusiasts are being invited to join in the festivities in the town on Easter Saturday (30 March 2024) for a delectable experience.

This exciting festival is the creation of a partnership with the Advocate Arms, Heneage Arms and Market Rasen Town Council. This is the second food and drink festival in the town’s Market Place and follows on from last year’s summer event. 

Matt Horsefield, head chef and proprietor of the Advocate Arms and Heneage Arms in Market Rasen is delighted to support the return of the event. He said: 

“We are really looking forward to this event, we are hoping for the same level of attendance as last year, if not more! We would love for this to be a regular event, but that all depends on good attendance at this one. We are hoping it grows bigger and bigger, bringing more people into our town.”

Featuring a diverse array of vendors showcasing the finest culinary creations, from artisan cheese traders to mouthwatering street food, including footlong fries and Lincolnshire produced ice cream. The event promises to tantalise taste buds and satisfy cravings but it’s not just about food, indulge at the Gin and Prosecco bar, cocktail bar and local brewery.

West Lindsey District Councillor Stephen Bunney is looking forward to attending the event, which is in his ward. He said: 

“I am thrilled to once again see this event return to Market Rasen bringing food lovers together in celebration. This year’s festival promises to be the most exciting yet and I am pleased it has been supported by funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

“Visitors will be entertained with live music from ‘Girls Gone Rockin’. There will also be a face painter and a wonderful Easter Egg Trail for families to take part in. So don’t miss out on this fantastic event and put the date in your diary now.”

The event will be held in the Market Place in Market Rasen from 10am to 4pm on Easter Saturday. Browse the stalls and take home something tasty. There will be an exciting, high-quality choice of take-away street food for all.
