Not the Sturminster Cheese Festival

THERE will be a pop-up food and drink market in Sturminster Newton on Saturday 12th September, making up a little for the disappointment felt by the hundreds of people who will be missing one of the best food events of the year, Sturminster Cheese Festival.
The cheese festival, which includes cookery demonstrations, cheesemakers from all over the country, many local organisations, live music and a selection of beers and ciders was due to take place over this weekend but was cancelled because of Covid-19.
A range of Dorset’s wonderful artisan food producers, including Lizzie Baking Bird, gluten free specialist Christine’s Puds, preserve, chutney and sauce makers From Dorset With Love and The Book & Bucket cheesemonger.
The small producers market will be in the town centre from 10am to 4pm.
