A Taste of Peebles
10 September 2011
Tweedgreen Event to Celebrate Local Food
Enjoy a Taste of Peebles, an opportunity to sample local food during the Tour of Britain.
On the evening of 10th September, Peebles High Street will be a blur of activity, as professional cyclists race around town competing in the Scottish Borders Exhibition Criterium Race. To heighten the festive spirit of the Tour of Britain, and to provide refreshments to spectators and competitors alike, Tweedgreen is organising a street food fair. “A Taste of Peebles” will be held on School Brae from 5.30pm to 8.00pm.
Gary White, Tweedgreen Project Coordinator said: “The Taste of Peebles event is designed to showcase our local food producers, retailers and suppliers. The event will be an opportunity for local food traders to provide a sample of their delicious food during Saturday’s Tour of Britain programme”.
The Taste of Peebles event will provide opportunities for families to relax and enjoy the evening in a relaxed, lively atmosphere and try samples from some of our most famous restaurants, cafés and local food retailers.
The Taste of Peebles event is also a part of Blasda, a national local food feast initiated by the Fife Diet group. (Blasda is Gaelic for tasty!). Tweedgreen is proud to have been selected as one of 12 groups nationally to take part in Blasda. For more info on Blasda, please click here
