Cumbria is quite a foodie destination with so many independent producers creating gorgeous pies, cakes, bread and other such delicious things. Delicious things that are not suitable for gluten allergy suffers!
Local food producers are working hard to provide gluten free alternatives alongside their existing products, and there is a special event being held in Carlisle to showcase their efforts.
The 10th annual Gluten Free food fair is taking place all day on 16th November at Carlisle Racecourse. The event costs just £1 to enter and there is ample free parking for the event.
In addition to many celebrated Cumbrian producers, there will be food suppliers and manufactures from all over the country offering free samples by the shed load, including things like bread, cakes and biscuits, all kinds of meats and pies, and gluten free beer.
