Conwy Honey Fair Monday 13th September

Another great event in the Calendar is the Honey Fair in Conwy, this will be held in Conwy High Street and Lancaster Square on Monday 13th September, between 9am and 4pm.

Below is an extract from the fairs website and what they welcome:

Honey and hive products.

Plants and seeds.

Local crafts appropriate to the theme of the Fair, eg. Bees and honey and plants.

Home produce: jams, pickles, cakes, pies, fruit etc.

Charities selling their own new merchandise or any of the above.

High Street shopkeepers’ own stalls outside their shops.

This Fair dates back more than 700 years to the reign of Edward 1st, when local beekeepers were given the right to sell honey within the walls of Conwy. I believe they were only allowed to sell on September 13th from Midnight to Midnight.

"Sounds like Eddie was a generous King"!!

I look forward to attending and buying some local produce.
