Thame Food Festival is a landmark event in the food calendar which attracts national notoriety and a huge number of visitors from far and wide.
It is a wonderful showcase for local artisan food and drink producers and retailers in the region, ie. food and drink made in a traditional or non-mechanised way using high-quality ingredients of great provenance.
The definition of ‘local’ producers and retailers is those situated within a 30 mile radius of Thame and their applications will be considered favourably where there is over subscription to a particular category of stall.
If produce is available nationally, ie. online and in a supermarket or major store, at a major food show or wholesale, then stall space will only be considered as part of a sponsorship package; details further down.
There is a three stage procedure for all stallholder bookings, as below:
STAGE 1 – ENQUIRY – only for new stallholders. If you came last year you will be taken directly to the booking process and payment.
Completion and submission of your stallholder enquiry form
Samples, and additional information will be required if you are a new stallholder and not known to us.
STAGE 2 – ASSESSMENT – for new stall holders only
Assessment of your stallholder enquiry and tasting of samples if provided will take place. You will then be notified whether or not we can offer you a stall space.
The organisers’ decision is final with regard to stall acceptance.
STAGE 3 – BOOKING Once you have been accepted you can complete your booking and make payment.
Your booking is NOT complete until you have paid for your stall.
Please note that the standard pitch size is 3m x 3m and that only stall space is provided.
All stallholders need to provide their own gazebo, tables and equipment etc.
Alcohol cannot be sold from open vessels for immediate consumption, samples may be given but all alcohol sales are on an off-license basis.
There are food producer sponsorship packages available. Producers who have produce available nationally can only have stall space as part of a sponsorship package, however smaller food producers are also welcome to take one of these packages to enjoy the extras that are provided.
