“Many of them have for this year recommended other cottage industry producers of niche products who will be attending. Interesting Fenland crafts and foods will be very well represented for our second year of the show.

“This is again a fair to engage with the producers of the good products of Fenland, as such there is again no fees for exhibitors or attending public.”
