In between juggling family life and careers we didn’t quite find enough ‘spare time’ to visit our local farmers markets and farm shops despite having a love of fine food and drink. Redundancy gave us the opportunity to discover the fabulous artisan producers on our doorstep (Essex and surrounding counties).
We want to share with the rest of the UK the wonderful produce we’ve discovered to support our local small businesses – there’s a lot more to Essex than the media would have you believe particularly when it comes to culinary delights.
The sharp contrast between reality TV and some of the World’s best food partly explains why Essex is one of the most frequently searched places on Google. The exploits of TOWIE in our home town of Brentwood generated a welcome boost to the local economy but the real Essex life of small batch food producers is far more exciting.
Tiptree Jam and Maldon Salt are internationally recognised brands typical of the quality that’s on offer, the mission of EssexFood.co.uk is to allow you to easily access the best of the Region’s smaller batch, speciality food and drink, online, delivered to your door. We are confident you too will be equally delighted and excited by our discoveries.
If you have a favourite local product and would like us to stock it then please do let us know.
