News: New Coventry food and drink trails and Spon Street gets an artisan market
May 12, 2021

[Disclosure: I do some work for Coventry BID, including writing blog posts and will be presenting the Coventry Big Foodie Weekend for them. This post is not part of my work for them]

The good news is here – Boris and his chums are sticking to the road map and we’re on course for places to reopen indoors on May 17th. It also looks like events are gradually coming back which means it’s full steam ahead for an exciting summer for Coventry. As City of Culture, there is a lot going on, and plenty for us food-lovers.

You may have heard (on this very blog, no less) mention of the Coventry Food Festival, now known as the Big Foodie Weekend, which Yours Truly will be presenting. But you don’t have to wait until then for some foodie fun in the city.

Coventry BID have this week released a whole range of maps and guides to showcase the food and drink offering in the city. There’s a cocktail trail, a coffee map, a general food and drink map, and ale trail and a ‘grab and go’ guide. Whether you’re local or visiting, they give you an idea of quite how much food and drink there is in Coventry and will take you to exactly where you need to be for whatever you want.

The maps and trails are being printed and will be distributed around the city so you’ll be able to pick them up and use them to trot around Coventry eating, drinking and being merry.

New artisan market for Spon Street

It doesn’t stop there with the food news out of Coventry. A brand new Farmers’ Market is coming to historic Spon Street, starting on Sunday, May 30, and featuring all sorts of artisan food.

A section of the street will be closed off, with all sorts of stalls from craft to entertainment and, yes, food!
