Harrogate Fine Food Show is a showcase of first-time and long-standing exhibitors. Visitors are able to meet and chat at length to the producers as well as taste products that will have never been seen before at a trade show. The Harrogate Fine Food Show introduces new producers who have up until now only been seen at farmers’ markets and therefore it’s your chance to seek out new trends in food and drink that will make your shop, restaurant, café or pub a more interesting place to visit.
Who should attend?
All buyers & chefs welcome: Butchers, Farm Shops, Food Halls, Delis, Village Shops, Garden Centres, Bakers, Cheesemongers, Fishmongers, Greengrocers, Cafés, Restaurants, Pubs
” Harrogate Fine Food Show is the reason why regional food shows are so important. They represent an exciting and efficient way for buyers, from all sectors of the trade, to see first- hand what’s new and where their next big launch might be coming from, or what start-up producers are offering in terms of new trend and direction ideas. We will certainly be visiting again next year.”

“Harrogate Fine Food Show was a magnificent success for our business growth this year. It was a real launch pad, allowing us to meet some incredible buyers from the world’s leading retailers, many of whom we are now working with. We couldn’t have done this without the support from the team at the Guild, who also included us in the show’s “Feed The Dragon” event – a must for any new brand.”
