One of the most popular foodie events in Surrey, Priory Farm’s Strawberry Fair celebrates its 10th anniversary this summer.
The event will take place at the family-owned farm – voted Surrey Life Farm Shop of the Year – over the weekend of Saturday June 29 and Sunday June 30 and is expected to attract thousands of food lovers from across the county and beyond.
Visitors will be able to browse a delicious spread of artisan and locally-made food and drink, including handmade breads, regional cheeses, charcuterie, sauces, spices, real ales and soft drinks. There will be plenty of tastings available, too, so shoppers can try before they buy, as well as have the chance to chat with the producers themselves.

Local Food Britain members on show include Chalk Hills Bakery, Surrey Hills Coffee, Crumbs Brewing, Distillers of Surrey, Greyfriars Vineyard, Trenchmore Farm, Silent Pool Gin, Titsey Brewing Co and Just Because Treats.
Tasty hot food will be on offer from Spade and Spoon, for those wishing to stay for lunch. And Priory Farm’s team will be enticing visitors with glasses of Pimm’s and Prosecco and sweet treats including Eton Mess and fresh strawberries and cream – the Farm Shop traditionally sells hundreds of kilos strawberries over the weekend.
Throughout the two-day event, young visitors can enjoy tractor rides and follow the summer-themed nature trail on the Discovery Walk.
“I can't quite believe it’s 10 years since we started the Strawberry Fair,” said general manager Will Edwards. “It’s become a firm fixture in the foodie calendar and we hear that people who have moved away actually come back especially for it. We love to see regulars as well as new faces and people of all ages really enjoy being part of such a great celebration of quality food and drink.”
Priory Farm’s Strawberry Fair will open between 10am to 4pm on Saturday June 29 and 10.30am to 4pm on Sunday June 30. Entry is free, and there is plenty of free parking.
