Shirlee Posner introduces essence readers to the Dorking Food Float – a unique retail outlet for local food producers located in Dorking’s high street.
The historic market town of Dorking is known for its antique shops, independent cafés, live music and the great food of many of its public houses, bars and restaurants. The town has a quirky vibe and a remarkable and totally unique local food model, offering a high street retail opportunity to over twenty-five local producers.
Every Friday and Saturday, the Food Float is set up outside Barclays Bank on Dorking High Street with a wonderful selection of local produce: freshly-baked cakes and pastries, craft and artisan bread, local honey, eggs, chicken, charcuterie and cheese, all of which are grown, produced and created within a 20-mile radius of Dorking. Impressive.
