Taste of Scilly – 1st – 31st September

This September, the Isles of Scilly plays host to the inaugural Taste of Scilly festival – a mouth-watering, month-long celebration of the very best in local food and drink across the islands.

Famous for its relaxed pace and simple pleasures, Scilly’s food and drink offer is no different – and represents the ultimate in slow food and low food miles. In fact, on Scilly you not only know where your food has come from, but you can often point to the fisherman or farmer who has provided it.

True to this provenance, the festival will feature a melting pot of local flavours and truly distinctive foodie experiences as the islands bring together local bakers, brewers, fishermen, farmers, foragers and chefs to share their stories, passions and creativity to really get the taste buds tingling.

Expect pop-up beach barbecues at Porthcressa Beach, fish for your supper night, fantastic local Produce markets, farm tours and tastings, gourmet lunches, Taste of Scilly cream teas, cider and ale festivals and, of course, the Low Tide event between Tresco and Bryher.
