Now in its third year, we are looking forward to an even better event with more artisan traders, an expanded street food scene and some amazing celebrity chefs demonstrating in our fabulous Cookery Theatre.

Into our Cookery Theatre on Sunday we welcome Cambridgeshire’s very own Great British Bake Off finalist in 2015, Ian Cumming. Known for his creativity, you can be sure Ian will be providing us with a show stopper so have your camera ready! In addition, we are very pleased to announce that Jack Stein, Executive Chef of the Stein Restaurants, will be joining us from Padstowe so expect a great fish dish. On Monday, back by popular demand, we warmly welcome once again Jean Christophe Novelli who went down such a storm at last year’s event. Jean Christophe will once again be charming the crowds with his charisma and French cuisine. In addition, we have a strong line up of local chefs and food experts providing an entertaining two days of demonstrations.

All our artisan, specialist food and drink traders will be housed in our main Food Hall with larger producers making up our Food and Drink Market. The Street Food Place, comprising of a range of culinary delights will tantalise your taste buds with their unusual yet exquisitely put together combinations ... find out more.

Further entertainment will be available throughout the city with our Bumper General Market being held in Market Place. With many of the shops opening especially for the weekend, Ely will be buzzing!
