A festival celebrating the joys of slow food will be held at the Holkham Estate this weekend.

Slow Food Anglia is holding a Sagra on Saturday.

Slow Food was founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986 and since spread worldwide. Promoted as an alternative to fast food, it strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seeds, and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem.

Its goals of sustainable foods and promotion of local small businesses are paralleled by a political agenda directed against globalization of agricultural products.

There is a market from 10am until 5pm with 22 small producers from East Anglia. Entrance is free but there will be a £3 car parking charge.
