The Shropshire Good Food Trail is back, bigger and better, for summer 2024, showcasing the local goods grown, made, sold and served across the county.

Initially featuring 50 venues, the trail now includes three times as many locations, with up to 150 places that will be putting the best of Shropshire's food scene on display.

Over the six weeks of summer holidays, from July 20 to August 31, locals and visitors will be able to use more than 4,000 food trail maps to guide them to these locations.

The first batch of maps will be available from next week at various tourism outlets.

These include the Shrewsbury Market Hall, the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, and through Visit Telford.

Maps will also be on offer at the 150 venues or can be downloaded from

Beyond just guiding participants, the Shropshire Good Food Trail map will also include an array of discounts and special offers from the host venues.

This year, the trail will also feature markets to promote the producers and emphasize the vital role they play in Shropshire's food economy.

Daphne Du Cros of the Shropshire Good Food Partnership team explained the objectives behind the Good Food Trail: "It supports the local economy, provides jobs and increases the amount of Good Food consumed.

"There are no downsides."

Ms Du Cros further emphasized the trail's aim to shed light on the smaller farms, shops and organisations that are great at producing but not great at shouting about it.

"We want local people and visitors to veer off the beaten track this summer with our Shropshire Good Food Trail and discover new hidden gems around the county," she added.

A Visit Telford spokesperson stated that they were proud to be working with the Shropshire Good Food Trail since it’s a great way to celebrate the local food, drink, and independent businesses that strengthen our community.

The Shropshire Good Food Trail is a not-for-profit initiative, and venues do not pay to be included on the map.

Ms Du Cros said: "This makes sure that all Good Food producers can be included on their merits with sponsors and donations helping to cover the costs."

The summer will see a series of events held across the county, celebrating Shropshire food and farming and providing opportunities for people to connect with nature and food production.

This year's participating locations include Honeysuckle Wholefoods, Oswestry Farmer's Market, Cambrian Railway Orchard Project (CROP), Hare Moon Cider, Niche Patisserie, Refill Your Boots, Wild Shropshire Restaurant, and Whitchurch Farmer's Market.
